2016 Accounting Entry-level Jobs

Entry-level jobs in accounting cover a wide range of different positions. Some jobs in accounting, for example, will require you to check over the financial records of an individual or a business to ensure that they are correct and that they are structured in such a way so as to have the most financial benefit to the individual or organization. Other jobs might involve helping individuals or corporations to correctly and beneficially file taxes. In any case, your job will enable you to directly help others, which can be very rewarding. Accounting entry-level jobs typically require you to work around forty hours per week, with only one in five accountants working more than this. However, accountants do tend to work more hours during tax season, which can be trying but also financially beneficial.

As an entry-level accountant, you can expect to make around $61,000 per year, on average. This is well above the median salary for all professions across the board and, of course, there is room to grow. Furthermore, the job outlook for accountants is bright, with employment expected to grow approximately 16% between now and the year 2020. This growth is largely due to the poor economy. In troubled economic times, more and more people are expected to turn to accountants for financial advice in the hopes of bettering their current financial states.

As you can see, there’s no better time than the present to secure accounting jobs.
