What is the average day for an accountant like?

I am starting school in August and I am trying to choose between accounting and graphic design. I am great with numbers, but I am also a very creative person. I don’t really know as much about what an accountant does as i would like to. What is the average day like? What do accountants actually do? Is it fun? What are the pros and cons of being an accountant? Thanks so much in advance! 😀

    It depends on the nature of the business you are dealing with. I would say at least 9-10 hours a day

    They play with numbers all day. Dull work for even duller people.

    There are different types of accountants.
    You can work for a public accounting firm or a private company.

    In public accounting, you will probably be an auditor (basically check the numbers other people report), which could also include traveling around the country/world depending on your firm’s clients.
    Another part of public accounting is doing taxes; either for individuals or other companies

    In private accounting, there are a couple of different routes you can take. First you can work in the financial part of the company. This would include reporting on the income and financial standing of the company.
    There is also cost accounting if you work for a manufacturing company. You would work with the budgets, cost to make products, etc.

    I have only worked in the private accounting world. For me, I like things to make sense- one plus one equals two and when it doesnt, figuring out what went wrong and why. One pro to the private accounting is that we do not have the crazy schedules most of the time that public accountants do (espically during tax season!). We don’t make as much money through from what I can tell, but I am ok with that.

    Pros to being an accountant is 1. there are actually different types of accountants so if you dont like the traditional accountant role, there are still options 2. You have the opportunity to make lots of money (public) 3. There is a need for accountants out there, making finding a job after graduation pretty easy 4. If you get an internship as an accountant, they are paid internships which I am sorry, when I was in college, was important to me.

    Con- 1. You dont get to be creative that much. So you will have to find other ways to get your creative itch out of you. 2. It can be boring. Some days/weeks are very boring

    Hope that helps!
