    Job Outlook for Accountant

    Powered by Glassdoor Economic Research

    Demand for accountants is growing as quickly as other fields. Accountants prepare and examine financial records, making sure that entries are accurate and that taxes are paid properly. Employers usually require prospective accountants to hold a bachelor’s degree, although the most competitive candidates may hold a master’s degree in accounting (MAcc). Accountants who file with the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) must be licensed Certified Public Accountants (CPA). Earning this certification requires passing an exam and participating in yearly continuing education.
