Accounting was something I never had any interest in or patience for. I was much more interested in jobs where there was more creativity and less structure.
Having said that, I think that forensic accounting would be a very interesting line of work. Working with cases that deal with fraud and embezzlement would not be boring.
Whenever I hear of cases on the news where people embezzled thousands of dollars, I find myself intrigued by this.
For me it seems crazy that people think they will actually get away with it. Sooner or later, it always catches up to them and they get caught.
I am curious what the average salary for a forensic accountant is? Do you also need to have any other special kind of schooling or training in addition to your accounting degree?
