But I am happy to brush up on my mathematics skills.
I have plenty of office based experience, mostly within the NHS, so a lot of skills that involve solving problems, customer service, working on the computer, basic excel skills, working on my own as well as part of a team. I enjoy the boring stuff because I don’t like a lot of routine but I won’t tell them that. lol I do like varied tasks but I also like something to focus on as well that I can specialise in. I don’t like to be in an enviroment where I things get thrown at me and I don’t have time to learn
I hate math too. I just get this pressure in my brain when I see too many equations.
The truth is also that I want to get out of work for a bit to focus on my self and some personal development in the process. I won’t lose out in the end. Except the first few years but struggle financially.
I don’t feel you should stop working completely. Just find something so simple it doesn’t feel like work. Almost the same thing.
I want to start the course at least and look for something in the field in the process. It then becomes a lot easier to find something. They always say they want someone already training.
Courses are good too. As long as you’re not taking an extended break and running off to an ashram to find yourself or something. It’s like, you’re right there, you don’t need to go to the other side of the world to realize that.
Ahaha no. I will start looking for jobs in the middle of the first year. At least they way, I will have some basic understanding of the processes in the job and can build on that. I know the course will be quite different in terms of how things are in the work place/
As long as it isn’t stressful it should be fine. If you have to push too hard mentally you are going to have an extra hard time doing it in an office.
Might even relapse.
I don’t find learning stressful, i find people very stressful so I need to be very careful about doing this. I will take extra time to think things through.
I don’t think it requires advanced math. Maybe precalculus at the highest? It’s mainly problem solving skills and attention to details, right?
There’s something called business calculus, which uses calculus minus trig functions and is easier and has business related problems. I know some people take that as an alternative to college algebra. Some accountants take calculus, but I’m not sure why. I took two community college accounting courses and it’s just algebra .
That’s correct. Accounting is much more to do with accounting rules. You mainly use additions and subtractions, sometimes multiplication and division, so grade 6 math.
