Skill vs Theory, what works in today’s market?
Let us first distinguish the two before we tackle the debate.
Theory is knowledge while skills are practical. Simple right?
Look at it this way, you can know all the rules to a sport, know all the team players by name and position, the statistics and even make great predictions at who will win or lose but, does it make you great at the sport?
Unfortunately no, you are just knowledgeable about the sport. You need to actually play the sport, practice its techniques and improve your skills through experience.
That is what makes you great at it, you practice it!
The same applies to accounting: You can know all the accounting theories, but might not have all the required skills to apply that knowledge to specific tasks, knowing does not make you skilled.
However, it’s only through practice that you will be able to master the fundamentals of advanced accounting and match the real-life accounting needs that employers want.
The best way to stay ahead of the pack and demonstrate your dedication to thrive in the accounting field is by taking the Practical Account Training and Career Mentorship Program.
“Though I am a qualified accountant (CPA-K) I was struggling to get job interviews as I didn’t have practical accounting skills. This training was able to bridge the gap and I now know what is required of me as an accountant. I feel confident applying for jobs, and since i started applying, i have already received two interviews. I am sure i will get a job very soon”. – Fredrick Mburu
