Right now, I'm trying to get through some hoops in registering for classes. I graduated in December with a bachelors degree in Finance, so there are some dumb rules that I have to get past before I can register for classes again. I'm going back for for an accounting degree, and an advisor told me to get an MAS (Masters of Science in Accountancy) since the school isn't allowed to award me a bachelors in accounting because of dumb rules. However, I already had those intentions anyway.
I wasn't able to obtain an internship for the type of finance positions I wanted, mainly because during my junior year of university, I was preoccupied with trying to enter the military and trying to become an officer (through Officer Training School), but when I found out the low odds of being selected, I was planning to go enlisted and then try to become an officer. However, I later learned that I most likely have gluten intolerance and lactose intolerance (I had several tests for acid reflux disease, but they all came back negative, so my doctor is pretty positive in my condition), so I'll never be able to enter any military branch because I can't eat anything made with gluten without getting a bad case of acid reflux.
Then after I graduated, the only places willing to give me interviews were for financial services positions, which involve selling insurance, financial advising, and investments. I wanted to be a financial analyst instead because I enjoyed my corporate finance and investment courses more, but hey, in this economy, I thought to go with what's available and work hard, hoping to jump fields later if the opportunity arose. Alas, I had to take personality tests and as expected, I don't have the right personality for a salesman (as financial services jobs are essentially sales jobs).
So, an accounting degree should help me because it would help me get a financial analyst position (because contrary to the title, it actually is another accounting job), plus other types of accounting positions, so there's that.
And this is just a few months after bragging that I'll never have to take another stupid test again in school.
