Show Me a Stable Profession with Job Security


A happy, confidence business woman.Every month the unemployment rate is announced. We are bombarded with news of people being laid off and jobs being outsourced overseas. Is there a stable profession that will provide you with the job security your family needs?Would you be interested in a career with a solid track record that dates back to before the Italian Renaissance? The need for accounting has existed for hundreds of years. In fact, experts credit accountants with facilitating the development of cities, trade, and the concepts of wealth and financial management since Luca Pacioli, the father of modern accounting, wrote his textbook on accounting in 1494.The accounting profession’s pivotal contributions include:

  • The invention of writing
  • The participation in the development of money and bankin.
  • The invention of bookkeeping systems that fueled the Italian Renaissanc.
  • The saving of many Industrial Revolution inventors and entrepreneurs from bankruptc.
  • The assistance in developing the confidence in capital markets necessary for western capitalis.
  • Playing a pivotal role in the information revolution that is transforming the global economy toda.

I’ve Considered Starting My Own Accounting Practice… Are There Really Opportunities for Me to Be Successful as a Contract Accountant?

Yes, in fact, there are. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:”As the economy grows, the number of business establishments will increase, requiring more accountants and auditors to set up books, prepare taxes, and provide management advice. As these businesses grow, the volume and complexity of information developed by accountants and auditors regarding costs, expenditures, and taxes will increase as well. Increased need for accountants and auditors will arise from changes in legislation related to taxes, financial reporting standards, business investments, mergers, and other financial matters… These trends should create more jobs for accountants and auditors.”

In Other Words, Growth in the Economy will Create an Increased Need for Bookkeepers and Accountants through 2012 (Bureau of Labor Statistics)

That sounds like a pretty stable job outlook to me. And a great climate for starting your own accounting practice. You may be thinking to yourself, “But I don’t have a college degree. I can’t be a bookkeeper or accountant.”That couldn’t be further from the truth. Yes, bookkeeping and accounting require a specialized education, but not a degree. It might surprise you to know that over 85% of the opportunities in the accounting field are within small businesses; and most colleges and universities don’t offer that type of specialized accounting education to their students.Since colleges and universities don’t meet the needs of small businesses, where can you find the type of education that will create a successful career?According to some, to gain practical experience, you’ll need to find a job at one of the big public accounting firms like Price Waterhouse, Cooper and work there for a couple of years. But they require a degree and still won’t provide you with the skills you will need to take advantage of 85% of the accounting opportunities. The needs of big corporations differ from the needs of small businesses.
