Jack Marwick

What are you studying?

A double major in Accounting and Finance.

Why did you want to become a CA Student Rep?

I wanted to be able to reach out to other students with information that would be helpful for them in the transition from obtaining a degree to getting a job.

How do you want to make a difference in the world?

I want to make a difference in the world by smiling, I feel smiling in everyday life can create a ripple effect, every time someone sees me smiling it causes them to also smile, and this effect is repeated by other people walking past. With more people smiling it creates a happier and more enjoyable environment to be in.

What are your career/life aspirations?

I would love to leave university and get a job as an accountant or doing something in the Finance industry. I also hope I can travel the world doing my job while also progressing in my career.

If you had any advice for your fellow students about tackling university or preparing for the 'real' world, what would it be?

My biggest piece of advice is to enjoy it, not everyone gets the opportunity to go to university. Join a club, go to events and party's, you will meet lots of people who are interested in same things you are, and you will make life long friends.

Tell me how you first got involved in with accounting/business, what inspired you?

In high school I was never the best at writing essay's in English, or anything to with that subject, I was always more of a number person. Once I got to pick my subjects for year 11 I chose accounting and finance as it was mostly numbers. From this point on I enjoyed accounting to the point that I am now studying it full time with the desire to make it my career.
