accountantEvery business uses the services of accounting professionals, making accounting program graduates some of the most in-demand skilled professionals of today. Accountants are employed either by an accounting firm, which handles the finance and accounting needs of client firms, or by the accounting department within a larger firm. Accounting professionals can range from entry-level bookkeepers to high-level auditors and accounting managers. Corporate CEOs and CFOs are often recruited from accounting backgrounds.

Accounting careers can range from basic bookkeeping to tax accounting, corporate finance, forensic accounting and auditing, among other directions. Each direction takes a different focus, which varies with the area of business involved. Accounting professionals can be as fine-tuned as a bookkeeper for a single small business, or as broad-scoped as the finance manager for a Fortune-500 firm.
