The purpose of this report is to help me prepare for a career as a chartered in Canada, specifically in a firm in Montreal. I would like to graduate from John Molson School of Business with a grade point average that is higher than three so that I can then apply to the CA program and become a chartered accountant. Before I do all that, I need to get as much information as possible about the job and about the business field in general. In this report I will be using many different sources that will help me gain the information and the experience that I need. The first source is a book called “Successfully Managing your Accounting Career” by Henry Labus. “Montreal Financial: Small Business Accounting and Financial Consulting” is the blog that I will be using for this report from: http://www.montrealfinancial.ca/blog/. Accountants World Do More Do better is the discussion forum from: //www.accountantsworld.com/newforums/.The newsletter that I will be using is called The Accounting and Bookkeeping Tips Newsletter (www.accounting-and-bookkeeping-tips.com). “Issues in Accounting Education” is the peer reviewed journal that I am using for this report (http://aaahq.org/pubs/issues.htm). As a primary source, my friend Michael Lewin will be available to help me in my career. The charitable organization I would like to volunteer for is the synagogue Hekhal Shalom. As an additional source I found the” Association Canada” (http://0-site.ebrary.com.mercury.concordia.ca/lib/concordia/docDetail.action?docID=10413264) repertoire where I can find association that have to do with the accounting job in Canada. A bar graph demonstrates how Montreal is the best city for continuing my education after my bachelor so that I can become a CA. A survey is also provided so that chartered accountants in Montreal can actually help me by telling me what they went through.
