Careers in Accounting

As a general rule, a college major does not prepare you for a specific job, but rather enables you to develop skills and abilities in your area of interest which can be applied to a broad range of occupations within that field. This is particularly true with accounting, which combines a strong foundation in accounting with good general knowledge of business.

Some careers are listed below; these represent a small sample of positions available to those who have earned an accounting degree.
