Demand For Accountants On The Rise

by Toby Lucich on February 5, 2008

Conventional wisdom said demand for accountants and auditors would have tapered off by now.
Well, conventional wisdom was wrong.

Staffing agencies such as Robert Half International, which specializes in pairing employers with accountants, say demand for talented, skilled professionals in the Tampa Bay area and around the country continues to rise, and salaries are growing.

The Wall Street Journal reports the Big Four accounting firms – PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte & Touche, Ernst & Young and KPMG – will hire as many or more interns in 2008 as they did in 2007, bucking the downsizing trend at other major employers.

Meanwhile, enrollment in the University of South Florida accounting program grows each year. And the industry is evolving rapidly, attracting new interest as it branches into such fields as information technology and forensics.

It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
