I want to join the coast guard but I don't know what job I want to do. I want an exciting job that allows you to move up in rank fast. I don't want to be one of those guy that are in the military for 3 years and then get out, I want it to be my career.
I currently work as a staff accountant and perform bank reconciliations. There is currently an opening in our tax department which deals with US, state, federal, foreign income tax compliance and analysis.
I don't have any tax experience but I do have strong analysis skills and a B.S. in Economics.
The salary for this position is higher than my current job as well.
However, is this a good career move? If I were to stay in Finance / Accounting, would this make it harder for me to move on to other finance positions?
Left out personal information, but besides that what else does this need to make it better? looking to become a purchasing agent for a company. also doesn't have all the info for education/training filled out yet. also this is not my resume im just helping someone out haha

"Manage lease portfolio for a European country. This concentrates either on begin or end of lease activities. Responsibilities are in settlement, billing, middle -lease requests, EOL decision and returns handling. In addition customer contact, reconciliation, reporting and audit support activities."
Can you explain what do all these things mean? I am not familiar with the terms, and my boyfriend is just too silly to explain, but I want to know what he is going to work. :) Thank you!
What is the difference between a Medical Receptionist and Medical Administrative Assistant? I'm going to college soon and Medical Receptionist is a certificate program and Medical Administrative Assistant is a degree program. Both programs have pretty much the same courses so I thought why waste my time going for a degree if I can get a certificate in Medical Receptionist. Is there a difference between the two and a difference in the salary? Thanks

I'm considering becoming an accountant. I live in TN and that's where I would be working if i decided to become one. I've been thinking about it, and today someone came to our school and talked about it, i'm a junior by the way. They explained to me about how long you would have to go to college, or how much TN requires. So I pretty much understand that. But I still have a few questions...
1. I make pretty good grades... mostly A's and a B every now and then. How much will my grades be needed? Or how much will they affect me getting into college and getting a job.
2. Right now i'm taking trig. My senior year I can take pre-cal. I know I don't NEED that for college but would it be helpful if I did take it? I really hope not because i've already had the teacher for 2 years... and he's not exactly the best.... but if it would be best for me to take it then i'll suffer through it I guess...
3. I'm in an accounting class right now, I know its just the basic basic stuff of accounting, but is that going to help me any? and will making good grades in there help me any?
4. Which field would YOU recommend... or which do you prefer, or like better, or enjoy more.... public accounting or private? and why?
5. There's an accounting academy offered in TN, would it be helpful for me to go?
6. What all different things do accountants do? I mean.. I know some of the titles of other stuff, but that helps me none. What do the actually DO?
7. Are the hours bad? I've heard the work alot usually... but the guest speaker also said today that, in TN anyways, usually starting off you get 4 weeks of vacation time.
8. If you're anything under accounting.. do you like your job?
No one has to answer all the questions lol just any you could help with. And i'll be sure to give a best answer!! =)
