What Does A Tax Accountant Really Do? Alumni Debunk Stereotypes

In this short video, alumni of GGUs Master’s Degree in Taxation program go beyond the “number crunching” stereotype to discuss what a tax accounting career is really like. The interviewees are now working at Apercen Partners, Cisco Systems, and two “Big Four” Firms: PricewaterhouseCoopers (now PwC) and Ernst & Young (now EY).

Most mention communication with clients and coworkers as rewarding and essential to the job. As Wylan Lau, Tax Senior at EY, says: “[Job interview skills] such as how to present yourself, how to do public speaking, and how to talk to people..are relevant now in talking to clients [and] colleagues…Those are things I learned when I was at GGU.”
