what you bring to the table

To thrive in a finance or accounting job, you must be a numbers person. If you enjoy crunching numbers and sifting through data, finance is the right place for you!

In addition to being all about the numbers, you'll need to be highly organized, methodical and a problem-solver. Attention to detail is also incredibly important, as something as small as a missed comma or zero can change your data significantly. Skill in sales, communications, and management will also help you progress into senior finance jobs.

Once you've decided what area you want to specialize in, look into the appropriate certifications in your province.
