Accountants are generally responsible for creating, analyzing and communicating financial information for companies, organizations, individual clients and government agencies. Accurate recording and reporting of financial data and business transactions comprise a major portion of an accountant’s focus.
With an increasingly global economy, greater scrutiny of financial data and an expected gap in the workforce due to retiring baby boomers, demand for accountants is on the rise. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts employment of accountants and auditors to grow by13 percent between 2012 and 2022, which is faster than the average for all occupations.
