Account Director seems have more correlations with sociability, managing a great relationship with customers and efficiently finding potential customers, than that of Senior Accounting Manager. The income of Account Director is around $92K on average, but, specially, with the accumulation of career experience, the salary chart of Account Director substantially presents a linear increase, opposite with some other careers. The male female ratio is about 7:13, which seems that female has more tendency to take this job than man does. As same as senior accounting manager, Account Director is also required to supervise and manage all accounts and analyze various kinds of accounting reports. They also have to make a lot of timelines and schedules for clerks, considerate and sharp-sighted. Word processi
ng capability is also significant for Account Director.
From my point, sincerely, from my current ability level and especially the aspect of communicating with others, I have to admit that th
ese two jobs essentially do not suit me. I still deal with number, calculation and programing since my current major is Software engineering, it is logistic and rational. Therefore, when I have to manage a series of relationship, I will feel nervous, heart beating faster, shame and want to run away. However
, frankly, I am deeply willing to have any chance to chat with others, exploring our own internal thinking with each other. In other word, although I am not that kind of person that can be qualified this two job now, I have a strong desire to become that kind of
person. My intended major is Mathematic that purely is science, but I hold that math can help me lay a solid foundation up to Finance. According to the differences between these two majors, Senior Accounting Manager looks like having more requests of analyzing ability than that of Account Director and it may be why there are more male choosing SAM than AD. On the other hand, the job of Account Director requests these directors put more effort into deal with their customers. I am not surprise by the salary of these two jobs, no pain, no gain. I do not totally agree that the level of satisfaction is more significant than the salary since, in large degree, money can easily buy anything, even happiness.
