If you are interested in an accounting career, take a strong
math and business course load in high school. In particular, you
must be very proficient in arithmetic and basic algebra.
Familiarity with computers and their applications is equally
important. Course work in English and communications will also be
beneficial. Be sure, of course, to take as many business and
accounting classes as possible. It never hurts to learn a foreign
language, especially if you plan to work abroad.
