Obviously computer science, why are you even asking the question
if I were you I'd just go pro in Overwatchcg
best job ever: I'm a swimming pool owner in the Seychelles.
350K usd/year and literally 0 work
Accounting is good if you like working 60 hours a week and being bored to death)))
This isn’t an easily answerable question. Computer science is such a broad field, there are so many things you can do. You can be a web developer and not even need to go to college and get a job that pays ok (relatively). You can become a security researcher and try to prevent hacks or hack things yourself. I have a friend who programs huge robots that work in factories. If you are really smart and like math you can work for a finance company and make $200k/yr base salary out of college. There’s so many options.
I work in deep learning and it’s enjoyable, pays well + job is pretty flexible and chill.
My advice to you is to try as many things as you can whether that’s by getting internships or part time jobs or doing research at your school if you go to college. Actually trying something is a lot more reliable way of knowing if you’d like it then asking mens)), 80% of whom are still kids.
I am an accountant, I didnt study it at uni (I took econ). Accounting is not difficult due to the complexity of the subject material, but due to the volume of work. Working in industry is very chill, and well paid if you reach management positions. It depends on the company but many will only work you 9-5/6 at most. For the best career progression you want to start in audit, ideally at big 4. Work there is gruelling, during busy season you can hit 80 hours per week for about a month of the year. But the experience is second to none in the accounting world. Most people do it for a few years and then dip for a higher paying job in industry. Job security is also very good, in the UK if youre an ACA qualified account which takes 3 years you will never earn less than £45k per year. You could leave a job and have one within a month, there is always a need for accountants. Managers can earn £60-80k, Ive seen a senior manager who was early 30s on about £120k base + bonus. There's potential to earn serious money.
Both very boring stay an hltv user for life instead
computer science, found ur own company and make a living from being a DJ
I'm looking to become an accountant, on top of my present job. A bit more money made.
My mother is a accountant and she always says “Miguel pls dont do this, its too stressful” she almost always arrives home with a headache of some shit like that, but it pays for her very many reais a month so… yeah
why asking a serious question on hltv LUL
Accounting is easier but more dull. Cs is harder but more interesting. Both may cause stress for different reasons.
just become a millionaire like me, and never have to work 9-5
Why are you asking this, you should be determining which of the two is more enjoyable for yourself, so you don't throw yourself into a pit of boredom wondering about what it could be, if you had just chose the other option.
They will both pay you enough to live comfortably on reasonable hours regardless of where you live, it really comes down to which one you enjoy most (but I can't see why anyone would enjoy accounting tbh).
CS majors will eventually replace accountants. Both jobs are stressful in their own ways. CS are stressful in the sense that there are tight deadlines and work is difficult. A normal traditional account (auditing and such. Not risk management) is a really stale job, and hours and long during crunch seasons with the big 4 firms. However, when it's not in the busy seasons, accounting can be a lot easier and stress-free, however, busy periods will result in you experience investment banking levels of work. (120hours+). Work balance is dependant on where you work as both are time consuming jobs. Salary wise, CS is much higher. With the lowest you can get being in the 80k range (USD) capping out at around 350k after promotion to a senior management at any decently sized firms. Starting salary for accountants are a lot lower, with big 4 salaries starting at 50-60k and really only rising up to 120-140k normally. However, people usually learn finance along side accounting. Which allows you to diversify. The ultimate goal of a someone studying finance should be becoming a CFO, which would mean salaries in the 500k. (You can also be a Quant with math and Cs for machine learning. They make maddddd money) job security, traditional finance related jobs will eventually be replaced by Cs (programs). But for CS, you have to constantly learn and improve yourself as CS is evolving at a rapid rate. CS also usually has an age limit. Once you hit your late 30's, if you're unable to get promoted, you'll be one of the first people that the company will lay off. most people usually work at a large techompaby into their 30's, and then leaving and start their own company. But they would have made enough money to invest in later life. However, this shouldn't be an issue in the near future. But it is something you should consider. As an accountant, prepared to be an accountant for life. And accounting isn't suitable for many people. Requires a lot of patience and dedication honestly. Have you ever considered consulting as an option?
account stress, work balance, and job security/salary.
At the current time I would definitely say CS is the best major to get into.
Edit: added more details.
I applied to both CS and accounting a few years back. Chose business in the end though. Business is more useful to my family. (Just some context) so I know the basics of their potential
I think you can't really say that based on the field. I've worked with accounting for five years earlier in my life, and it really comes down to what kind of business you're working at. Right now I work in the electronic payment business (the company makes a shit ton of money), and when we're too busy we either hire more people or if temporary, hire consultants to do monkey work. In smaller companies or companies that don't earn as much money, they would expect you to put in the hours, and some companies will not pay you for overtime. If I work overtime now, I get added 1.5 x my hourly wage to my "time bank balance", which I can either get paid or spend as time off. But I've also earlier in my career worked in companies that paid me half of what I make now, and with no benefits, where they would expect me to work 50 hrs a week. So It all really comes down to what your personal preferences and interests are.
What ever your interested in both are good paid when committed high lvl in accounting you can fake your computer knowledge to dodge some extra work
