The news is good for those seeking careers in accounting. It's projected that by 2016 there will be 16 percent increase in job openings, both as a result of increased legal complexities, and as added safeguards against the kind of scandals that have plagued the economy throughout the past several years.
One of the most rapidly approaching trends is the growing demand by CPA firms for temporary assignment accountants. The upswing of this trend is that more firms will continue to be partnering with professional staffing agencies to fill positions during seasonal business cycles. This provides ample opportunity for more inexperienced accountants to cut their teeth working for firms that will pay not only in currency but in valuable job experience. With the demand for industry experience growing in correlation to the lowering demand for college graduates, professional recruiters will continue to play a large part in matching candidates with employers.
