According to Dr. Tang Tri Hung, “Although the pandemic has had a heavy impact on the accounting apparatus, the economy that wants to re-operate must have accountants. When artificial intelligence (AI) is being applied, manual labor is no longer suitable, forecasting and analyzing data is extremely important. Mastering industry norms, theories and online interaction skills taken in the online learning phase can help us advise businesses to make the right, wise and appropriate decisions to respond to the market in the current and upcoming context. Accounting is not just numbers, it's both arts and science."

The digital transformation process is making strong changes, and Covid-19 is a catalyst for this transition to be faster. In addition, artificial intelligence (AI) is tending to replace human labor force, putting human resources (HR) in the industry at risk of being eliminated. As follow Mr. Quach Chanh Dai Thanh Tam – General Director, Tapro Joint Stock Company – Training and Consulting accounting, tax: "The accounting and auditing industry is growing as technology replaces low-value, repetitive jobs, opening up many new opportunities for accountants, audit. To master the game, the professional must always adapt and constantly learn with every step of the times."

Facing with students concern about the hesitation between “choosing big corporations or start-ups?", Mr. Mai Ngoc Manh said that each type has its own opportunities and limitations, so to be able to make the right decision, it is necessary to refer to their actual needs. Personally, he says that if students have just graduated, they should start from large corporations, so that they can have a lot of contacts and learn in a standard workflow.

Taking the employer's perspective, Mr. Tam said ACCA or BCA certificates are only a plus in the CV, but attitude is the determining factor of the employer's choice. Accounting and Auditing is considered a profession that needs high honesty and security, businesses need long-term engagement, so they rely on the goals and attitudes of the candidate to consider and choose. However, most GenZ's are having problems with skills such as time management, working under high pressure, problem solving and communication skills, self-introduction. The two speakers said that in addition to digital skills, you need to cultivate the limitations and cultivate empathy to easily adapt to the working environment.
