As much as ‘love makes the world go round‘, money is an essential element in each of our lives. We entrust our financial well-being to people who safeguard bank accounts, provide loans, insure cars and homes, and help us make wise investments. Careers in the Finance industry involve using your skills in math and statistics to make strategic decisions to obtain, save, protect, and grow the financial assets of businesses and people.
Workers also need good communication skills so that they can answer questions and clearly explain information. They must be service-oriented and sometimes work with people who are under stress about their finances, so communication skills are extremely important. This industry has many well-paying careers in financial and investment planning, banking, insurance, and business financial management. More accountant and auditor positions are likely to open up as factors such as stricter laws and regulations in the financial sector and continued globalization will drive demand for accounting services related to international trade and international mergers and acquisitions. The finance and insurance industry has one of the highest average weekly wages when compared with other industries.
