The skills that accounting majors learn are transferable to other jobs. I knew that accounting could lead to other professions because a couple of my relatives majored in accounting; however they received other job offers out of college and were never accountants. This showed me that majoring in accounting would provide me skills that are unique in the business world that can be applied to other jobs that are not only accounting related.
There is no doubt accounting is a challenging major, however I enjoy being challenged. After solving an accounting problem and having my balances equal, I feel a sense of satisfaction of doing something correct. One thing is certain; do not think that you have to know what you want to major in before going to college.
