Careers in Accounting


Average annual salary for accountants and auditors as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Job Outlook

  • Most accounting jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree in accounting or a related field.
  • Opportunities will be best for jobseekers who have a master’s degree, obtain certification or licensure or who are proficient in the use of accounting and auditing computer software.
  • Faster-than-average growth of accounting and auditor jobs will result from an increase in the number of businesses, changing financial laws and regulations, and greater scrutiny of company finances.
  • Employers increasingly seek applicants with strong interpersonal and communication skills. Many accountants work on teams with others who have different backgrounds, so they must be able to communicate accounting and financial information clearly and concisely.

Some individuals with backgrounds in accounting and auditing are full-time college and university faculty; others teach part-time while working as self-employed accountants or as accountants for private industry or government.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts that the number of accountants and auditors will grow by 4% from 2022-2032.
