    I am 23 year old who graduated from University with a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Professional Accounting. I am also currently working as a casual junior accounts payable officer where I received shift on call. I was planning to start my post graduate degree early next year but I don't know which areas of study I want to study in. I am genuinely don't know what to do with my life in the future.

    One moment, I want to become an accountant and then next moment, I want to start my post graduate degree because I was struggling with finding full time accountant work and with the recession going on in response to COVID-19, it was mostly likely that I will start my post-graduate degree in finance or IT (Information Technology).

    I was hoping if I could get some advice from this forum and I really appreciate your time and effort. Thank you

    Hi JR, welcome

    The armed services isn't for everyone but as a former defence person (RAAF) joined at 17yo now 64, it certainly enhanced my life.

    After a qualifying period you can apply for a home loan, you get free medical, hood pay and with uni qualifications likely qualify for officer training.

    I don't think joining the defence force was a good idea for me.
