I have only just started looking at jobs in accountancy. But i dont really know where to start. From what i understand so far, the main 2 areas to go into are audit and tax. i have a few questions at this point in time:
how did everyone decide what they wanted to go into? Ive done a maths degree but have no releveant experience in either of these areas so really dont know which one to apply for.
do people working in the tax department still become chartered accountants at the end or is it a different qualification?
which is the more popular choice?
what are the different possibilities for afterwards and which is the most varied?
which is generally seen as more interesting/rewarding and which is supposed to be harder work?
which is harder to get into and which would i be more likely to succeed in applications seeing as i have no experience?
thanks to anyone who answers any of these questions
