While unemployment is still close to the double digits, the upswing in the economy is allowing companies to hire new employees. However, some jobs, like accounting, are in high demand.



Jobs in accounting are in extremely high demand, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

With the slowly recovering economy, accountants are responsible for making sure that all financial records are kept, books are balanced and taxes are paid – making the job highly valuable, especially for companies that were on the brink of bankruptcy, according to the news source.

The best way to pursue a career in accounting is either by earning a bachelor’s degree in the subject, or pursing CPA certification. There are many online and evening programs that offer courses to prepare those interested in taking the test.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of accountants is expected to increase by 22% through 2018. The average annual earning for an accountant is about $61,480, according to the BLS.ADNFCR-1502-ID-19935077-ADNFCR
