The Accounting Allure


Temptations such as better pay and job satisfaction are drawing more people to the accounting world.

A Salary.com survey ranked public accounting among the best jobs for career-changing professionals, citing a projected 10-year job growth rate of 22% and salary range of $36,800 to $90,700.

More than 30% of career-switchers surveyed said they’d spend “as long as it takes” to complete the required schooling and certification. But what are these professionals looking for in their new CPA career? As expected, increased pay and advancement opportunities, but also mental stimulation and challenges, passion for the work, flexible schedules, business networking and peer interaction.
