My brother who is in his late 20’s wants to get some substantial qualification to his name but is torn between commerce and practice. He has tried to get solid advice (he won’t listen to me) but there seems to be no clear path. His concerns are that he is the sort of person who does not like to be tied down, so demands flexibility in his work. he knows that if he remains as an NQ he will gain knowledge, but that will not necessarily progress him.
In his view practice has a defined path whereas commerce has many openings, but of itself that is confusing. He likes the idea of auditing and is considering internal audit as an answer to his NQ status. It is the struggle to decide on a course and break away from the NG status that holds him back.
Has anybody experience of breaking out of the NQ rut?
