Neil McIntyre’s Journal Entries deserves a special mention. Neil’s one of my regular Canadian readers but it’s been a long time since I dipped into his blog. I’ve been missing out.
Congratulations Neil. And to your mate at A Counting School. You folk have worked real hard for this achievement. Bask in the glory for a little while at least.
These folk have real passion for the profession and what it’s giving them. Most folk when they’ve passed their finals just want to forget study forever. Not these. And they’re refreshingly honest in adjusting to their new found position:
I canâ€™t say as I felt more competent than last week, although inside I felt more confident…
Where does one go from here? I had a short-term goal, but had deferred thinking about anything long-term, partially out of superstition. I didnâ€™t want to count my chicks before theyâ€™d hatched, but now that theyâ€™re out there, I need my trusty calculator!
I can think of a few firms who’d love to offer this type of candidate the chance to learn in the UK.
As an aside, the near absolute dominance of the Big Four is evident from the Honour Roll. I wish I could feel more positive than I do.
