You Can Count on Accounting

By August 4, 2010Career Planning, News

Considering the poor economic period we’ve been going through, it’s easy to assume that jobs relating to money aren’t in the highest of demands.

That’s luckily NOT the case for the accounting industry.

Per this article, accounting is one of the most promising industries in the market. As it reports:

Projections from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that employment in the accounting field is expected to grow 22 percent between 2008 and 2018, resulting in more than 270,000 new jobs. Specific fields expected to see some of the largest employment opportunities in the coming years include:

• Forensic Accounting–The need for forensic accountants continues to increase as technological advancements allow white-collar criminals to become more sophisticated in their crimes. Forensic accountants work as investigators to detect fraudulent activity within a company.

• Financial Accounting–Businesses rely on proper bookkeeping to stay viable. The day-to-day work performed by financial accountants is vital to helping business leaders make sound economic decisions.

So here’s my question to you: if you’re NOT already in accounting, does a report like this make you consider switching industries? I’ll wait to give you my thoughts until you’ve had enough time to share your answer!
