I am interested in the accounting field. Forensic Accounting and Real Estate Accounting are the two specialty areas that interest me the most. I am looking for insight into both to see which one fits my personality more.
Eugene - accounting is a great field, applicable to nearly every industry. Forensic accounting is a more specialized niche utilizing audit and investigation mindset to review financial transactions and tell a story. It's all about "following the money" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShWe-4mtV8w
The forensic accounting role may require 2-5 years experience in general accounting and/or auditing. The CPA is not always required, but never hurts. Take a look at the resources availble from ACFE (https://www.acfe.com/). The CFE certification is a great place to start.
