There is one thing my family is well known for.. It's maths.. My dad can do such complex equations in his head.. Does em faster than I can on the calculator.. Now my parents want me to become either an accountant, or an engineer.. Well I just turned 17, so My theories might be umm.. dunno how to put it.. Garbage? Well anyway this is what I think.. I always hear everyone saying their becoming an accountant etc.. I know soooooooo many people that are becoming an accountant.. Well what I wonder is that, will accounting really survive? With computers becoming faster and more complex, I think it'll be a matter of time before computers replace accountants.. Also since there are so many people going in the accounting field will there not be more workers than work? When I talk to people about this, they tell me that accounting is very hard and that most people that go in the field don't really graduate out as accountants.. I don't mind becoming an engineer, but I heard it's really hard (as I read the engineering thread). Well anyway what do U guyz think? Is accounting gonna be as good of a source of bread in the house in the future as it is now? And will computers really take over?
