According to the Department of Labor the employment of accountants and auditors are expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through the years. As the economy grows, the number of business establishments will increase, requiring more accountants and auditors to set up books, prepare taxes, and provide management advice. Although computers and accounting software will decrease the clerical need for accountants, there will be an ever increasing demand for accountants to provide management and consulting services.
Employment areas are numerous for accounting graduates. They include general accounting, payroll, bookkeeping, credit analysis, auditing, taxation, budgeting, cost analysis, controllership, treasurer, and chief financial officer. Opportunities are available in education, government, and industry.
