Accountants are in demand in every business and industry. It may be a good fit for you if you are detail-oriented, like to have things organized, and have strong problem-solving skills.
Businesses rely on their accounting departments to provide a clear, concise, and accurate financial picture and use the information accountants provide to make crucial decisions. Accounting relates to all aspects of an operation, so the ability to work as part of a team is essential. Payroll, accounts payable and receivable, budgets, and financial reports are some of the responsibilities of an accountant.
