No matter how much the modern business world continues to change and transform, no company be successful without an adept accounting team. With keen insight and attention to detail, accountants serve as the connective tissue between all the business units in a corporation. Now more than ever, top-notch accountants and finance professionals are in demand to make sense of the tsunami of financial data businesses now generate to inform business decisions.
Corporations rely on accountants to identify ways to reduce costs and grow revenue and make strategic recommendations.
Accountants are consistently well paid because they’re in high demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of accountants and auditors is projected to grow 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

It’s a rewarding career path, too. A 2017 Monster survey found that accounting and auditing professionals are the professionals most satisfied with their jobs — ranking No. 1 in the survey.
