Financedepartment in any modest organization is a crucial department andthus the personnel who are deployed need to be experienced enough tohandle the tasks before them. In this light the discipline shouldensure experience is passed on to its members even before they joinformal employment through structured industrial attachment andinternship opportunities being offered to them before they commerceformal jobs.This has been said before anyone is handed a job in thefinance majors he/she should possess pre-requisite experience as oneof the main qualification for the job posting.

Becket al. (2013) arguethatthe experienceis extremelyvitalforfinancemajors.Theyneedto goout andgetfirsthand experiencethat shall helpthem to understandthedynamics of their duties.Suchmajorsneedto startoff their careersat thelowestlevels possibleforthem to learnsystematicallywhileon their jobs.Theyhaveto be opento positivecriticismthat shall enablethem to developtheir careerseffectivelythushelpingtheorganizationsto achievetheir set goals(Besley&amp Brigham, 2011). Experienceis essentialin helpingtheseprofessionalsto readsituationsandadvicetheir companieseffectivelythusleadingto theexpectedlevel of success.

Workexperience on top of the educational qualification that an individualpossess go in line as before this particular member can apply tofurther his /her knowledge in the finance discipline it will act as apre-requisite for them to have obtained real world experience sinceit analyzes the day to day business problems contained in thecoursework of their entire study hence the problem solving techniquesare going to be put in practice at the job place. Thatnotwithstanding experience enables an individual to identify theskills he/she has in the discipline thus motivating them to work ontheir weakness and in the process they will be increasing the pool ofskills in the organization for better service delivery.

Financemajors play a vital role in many blue-chip companies and thus thedecisions that come as their result affect largely if the saidorganizations are going to prosper or incur formidable losses. Thusthe finance majors need to come up with structured ways of derivingethos in the discipline.Some of the modes they have explored to bringthis into realization include the following. Developing professionalcourses in the discipline in one of the strategies the finance majorshave come up to boost ethos in the profession. Apart from the commonbachelor and master’s degrees related to finance, the disciplinehas formulated a professional courses that further the knowledge ofits members in the field thus enhancing professionalism andexcellence in service delivery. Again to derive ethos the disciplinedesigns learning curriculum that addresses the real issues in themarket environment and thus the members are able to appropriatelyapply their knowledge into real life situation in their work place.Finally the finance majors have enhanced integrity in the manner it’soffering its courses thus ensuring that nobody obtains itsaccreditation by using uncourt and unscrupulous means withoutpersonal excellence.

Thatnotwithstanding job experience in financial majors is an indicationof excellence in the field and thus members who have attained orearned experience will be highly regarded in the discipline as theirpool of knowledge will be contacted every now and then in form ofconsultation when crucial decisions are to be made.Most importantlyif a member is experienced in the field it means he/she hasundertaken/handled a number of case as far as the discipline isconcerned and is most likely fit to offer consultancy services notonly to the firm that he/she works for but also other externalentities that may find his/her knowledge valuable.

Onthe other hand the members of the discipline derive ethos by firstbeing open minded to correction and positive criticism to ensure thatonce they are ready to be corrected they are therefore ready to learnand thus boost the level of knowledge they acquire in the discipline.That notwithstanding they should always strive to give their levelbest in the course of their job endeavors to ensure they set newstandards in the field thereby setting the bar higher for theirsuccessors and the overall excellence of the discipline.

Experienceplays an important aspect in the growth of a company as anexperienced member is able to share how he/she used to work at theirprevious job stations and this will greatly help a firm to eitherimprove the way it handles its operations or implement a completeoverhaul to ensure it achieves success.

Ina nutshell experience in the finance majors is a very criticalelement and should at all times be given priority whenever hiring newpersonnel to an organization. Thisis due to the fact that it servesto strengthen the level of knowledge and professionalism in theorganization to boost service delivery. These sentiments are sharedby Beck et al. (2013) as he affirms my notion by asserting thatexperience is very important for finance major sand thus need to bekeenly checked.
