According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for accountants and auditors are expected to “grow faster than average” between now and 2014. Due to the need for accurate corporate financial reporting and the accounting scandals of recent years, there will be a higher demand for accountants and auditors who can keep accurate financial records and make accurate financial predictions. As a student, you should strongly consider a degree and/or additional coursework in accounting if you want to be part of a growing industry. Companies will need to enact tighter controls to keep financial reporting on the up and up. Accounting professionals will be in demand to make sure this happens as companies stay within the law and take responsibility.
