Which line to choose whether IT or accounts, because both are interesting for me...but ofcorse I can choose one....so I am confused.

From very beginning I am interested in IT career. but when I took commerce with maths as a subject in class eleventh I built interest in accountancy. I am not able to decide which main line I should select, whether to go in accounts field or somewhere near IT? and if I decide to go ahead with bcom or bms then I should choose regular college or correspondance so that I could do any professional course with it.

Hello My Dear Career Aspirant,


Reading your career gives me the impression that you are really a good student with a good attitude towards your self and your career. Initially you were interested in IT sector and wished to do career in that, however when you joined the commerce stream and got to know the accountancy subject, you got the feeling that you loved this subject and there fore you are now confused between IT and accounts for your career..

In my more than seven years of career counselling experience, such confusion is natural and for a sincere student like you this is not abnormal. I am very happy that you are hearing your inner voice. It very much happens for every one that onece one gets into the subject and gets to know the subject, the liking develops and builds. This has happened in your case too my dear student.

I am glad that you approached CareerGuide.com for seeking guidance and advice and I am thank ful to you for the same.

IT and Commerce field:

Many student these days are wanting to go to IT field. This is not wrong, but as you said that you have now beeing liking the accounts subject, may be this is an indication from your heart and mind that commerce is the career made for you as an individual.

I very much feel that listening to your inituition (inner voice) you should choose commerce field, rather than IT. I am tell you this because of the proven fact that when ever one pursues a career based on this inner voice and liking, and interests, that person becomes very successful.

Regular degree course or correspondence:

This is very right question and you have asked it at a very right time my friend.

DO NOT go for correspondence course for your graduation. Companies and post graduate institutes and pprofessional course institutes do not feel comfortable to take correspondence degree gradautes and majority do not allow admission if graduation is through distance learning.

You should definitely join a regular full time class room attendance based college for your BMS or BCom degree.

If you are interested in accounts and like wise subjects, I would recommend you to go for BCom rather than BMS.

Best Luck!
