Increase Your Career Options : Earn a Professional Designation

Accounting is the second oldest profession in the world. Since mankind began using money, they devised a way to count and track its comings and goings. And the accounting profession isn’t slowing down today. In fact, it’s growing at such a quick clip that the Bureau of Labor estimates that by 2008 accounting jobs will have increased by 20%. They say: “In addition to openings resulting from growth, the need to replace accountants and auditors who retire, or transfer to other occupations, will produce numerous openings in this large occupation.”

You can have advantage in this powerful shift in the Accounting and Bookkeeping profession! The opportunities are endless for those who have been properly trained. Here are just a few possibilities.

Get a New JobThere are four basic types of accountants and bookkeepers: public, management, government, and internal auditing. And while those descriptions lack luster, consider that jobs within those areas can include anything from a payroll clerk to a treasurer to an underwriter to a collections specialist to a personal financial planner to a chief financial officer, and the list goes on. Of course, experience and training play a role in the type of accounting or bookkeeping job you can get, but it’s important to realize all the options an accounting background can offer you. Here’s a list of jobs you might find:

  • Director
