Tips to success in studying accounting

As the financial year has just finished, we have entered the annual tax reporting peak season and the demand for accountants seems to be higher than ever. According to joboutlook.gov.au, accountant job growth is expected to be strong in the future, new jobs and turnover from workers leaving may create more than 50,000 job openings over next 5 years. Accountant’s have been on the list of eligible skilled occupations for residency visas in Australia.

If you have chosen an accounting major as your path to a career in business, put aside the fear of long hours of study and boring number crunching, always think about the many job opportunities out there and the bright future. Here are some tips for successfully studying in accounting.

Understand “Why” and “What”

Accounting is in truth, a social science subject, it is full of man-made rules that are not always self-evident, they must be learned by knowing why and how we make them work. If you look for logic or reason, you will lose focus. Always take the initiative to review study material and ask your teacher for clarification.

Master “How”

After “why” and “what”, you must be able to apply concepts and theories that you learn to resolve problems, compare any complications that are known with the reading material. Revisit previous chapters and notes to refresh your memory, revisit aspects that were difficult for you. Try to incorporate anomalies that match the assigned homework. In other words, practice, practice, practice!

Make best use of class time

Remember, class time is critical!

  • It is easier to KEEP UP than to CATCH UP
  • Classes are never interesting unless you TAKE PART, do not be afraid to ASK QUESTIONS.
  • Always be PREPARED before you go to class
  • Students who FAIL do so due to poor attendance, failing to pay attention during class, failing to do homework, and failing to ask for help when needed.

Stay focused and enjoy studying. Strive now to get a better future.

Complaining politely in English!

If you translate a complaint from your language into English it will sound very rude to English speakers. This is because we complain very politely! We avoid making the complaint personal.

We do not say ‘I want this or that, you must do this for us‘ We use modal verbs such as would or could or the past tense as in ‘I was hoping that’ or ‘I would appreciate if you would look into my problem!’ ‘I was hoping you would be able to assist!’

Start by using the phrases below:

  1. “I’m sorry to bother you” or “Excuse me, I wonder if you can help me”
  2. “Can you help me with this?
  3. “There has been a misunderstanding.”
  4. “I understand it’s not your fault, but…….
  5. “I understood that the taxi ride to the airport was only 25 dollars.”

More ways to complain:

Getting Attention

  • Excuse me…
  • Pardon me…
  • I have a complaint…
  • Sorry to bother you but…
  • I’m sorry to say…

Expressing opinion

  • I’m afraid there’s a problem…
  • I’m really not happy…
  • There’s a slight problem with…

Making the complaint

I would like

  • to make a complaint                              
  • to report an issue                             
  • to give you some feedback                                 
  • to inform you

Finally a letter of complaint:

Dear Sir/Madam

My name is _______ and I am writing to inform you that there seems to be a problem/issue with ________ .

I am/was extremely disappointed/very upset/offended because _____________ .

I would really appreciate it if you could explain to me why this issue occurred and what you might do to rectify the situation.

I hate to make a fuss, but I feel it’s necessary to draw this to your attention.

I await your considered response.

Yours Sincerely,

Remember to always be polite when complaining in English as you will get a better outcome!

New courses at SSBT

SSBT has recently added a very interesting course “Project Management”. As the title states it is the art of managing a project which very few people are equipped to do. At SSBT we are here to build your knowledge and start your journey as project wizard.

In current days, project management is in demand due to the increasing numbers of contractual work available.

A year ago; a friend of mine who is a Mechanical engineer applied to work in Qatar; believe it or not he was asked if he had a project management qualification as he will be responsible of managing a project in the Qatari desert installing oil pipelines. That person is a fully qualified Engineer from Australia; still he had to do Project Management Diploma before flying to Qatar to earn $US 150K. This shows that the BSB51415 Diploma of Project Management offered by SSBT can be used in any industry where there is a project to manage
