  1. Looking for a job – evaluate your potential employer. Like employees looking for a job an employer also needs to be checked and assessed. Expert Software Systems - a practice for its staff

  2. In my opinion Accountancy. The math level for accounting is really adding and subtraction, but most is principles, laws and regulations. If you have a good memory for facts and laws and principles and you can use a calculator I would suggest accounting, if you can’t really remember the laws and regulations then I would suggest a major like business admin, but be aware you will be taking basic accountancy courses with that major and intermediate, some business majors actually become accountants.

  3.
