This question is very debatable. Everyone has an opinion. Moreover, there are so many jobs for everyone to do.

After a student has completed his or her secondary education, he or she has to choose a course to study in a University. Parents should not let their children choose a career because at the young age, they have very little experience and knowledge of the future confronting them. For example, some students might be passionate about singing. Do you know how many singers are really successful in Malaysia?

Parents advise them. Children may tell you that when you were young you did not have internet computer technology and you don’t know all these new things. You should tell them that the old people invented them.

The first workable prototype of the Internet came in the late 1960s with the creation of ARPANET, or the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network. Originally funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, ARPANET used packet switching to allow multiple computers to communicate on a single network.

Everyone has to work to earn money to live. Even if you come from a very wealthy family, if you don’t work, your life can be very boring because you have nothing to do.

Although our ultimate aim in life is happiness, but without money you cannot be happy. So, choose a profession that you can easily find employment with good pay. Even if you don’t enjoy managing money, you would not mind if the salary is good. You should be happy if the pay is good.

Among all the employees of any company, the CEO and CFO enjoy the highest salaries and usually they are accountants.

Accountants can easily find employment. Every company needs accountants. Even small businesses need accounting service because they have to submit income tax at the end of every year.

As I said earlier, this question is very debatable and everyone has an opinion. If everyone choose to be accountant, who is going to do the other jobs?

You must bear in mind that every job is important. Even collecting rubbish is important and necessary.

I am a Chartered Civil Engineer and a businessman. After my retirement, I am a full time investor. I think I could have made a lot more money if I have been an accountant.

This is my opinion and you are entitled to your opinion.

To study accountancy, the person would only need one calculator, one pencil and an eraser whereas more tools and equipment/facilities are necessary when studying medicines, electricals or electronics.

Every organization need a book-keeper or an accountant so it is easier to gain the employment upon graduation.

Being an accountant or financially literate, we can decipher the Financial Statement of any businesses without difficulty.

Many traditional jobs will be obsolete with AI and machine learning. And kids who are below 10 years old today will probably get a job that yet to exist today.

somewhat agree with SecretOne. In 10 yrs time, there might not need a translator. With technology, it might be as simple as put in the earbud and instant translation like what you did with google translate.

Am not a blockchain expert but with blockchain, will there be a need for accountant? Sorry as i'm noob.

Accountants are still needed and important in the organizations, business entities and governments for the productive functionalities. Don't see anytime soon that these jobs will be become irrelevant anymore since the ancient times.

These new things such "merging", "outsourcing" and "blockchain" kind of things are from those universities that may wanted to misguide many ignorant nations.

Merging has caused many of our small banks went missing. Those few banks that have become bigger are not serving the small businessmen anymore better.
