Accounting Jobs Set to Sizzle

May 13th, 2011

Even during the recession, the accounting profession has fared rather well.  This trend will continue and certain areas of the profession will be in high demand as companies enter the hiring mode and baby-boomers that have held off retiring leave the workforce.

Jobs in accounting and finance may not be recession proof, but they canopy a range of careers that come pretty close to the mark. That’s what recruiters and experts in the field are saying, and the outlook only gets better going forward.

“Even through the recession, accounting and finance has stayed strong and stable,” says Toby Coffey, director of permanent services for Robert Half Finance & Accounting in Chicago, adding that, while salaries haven’t grown overall in recent years, they maintained their levels. “There are certain skill sets that will be in very high demand coming out of the recession,” he says.
