You can start investigating the field of accounting by joining your high school or college business club (and acting as its treasurer to obtain experience working with budgets, paying bills, and managing financial records). Perhaps your accounting teacher or a career counselor could recommend an accountant and auditor who is interested in talking about his or her career. Participate in summer programs at colleges and universities that allow you to explore accounting and business careers. One such opportunity is the Discover Yourself in Accounting Majors and Careers Program at the University of Texas at Austin, a free, six-day experience that allows high school students to explore the world of accounting. Finally, check out the following resources to learn more about accounting, auditing, and mutual funds.
