Accounting majors are highly employable. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants says
“CPAs and potential CPAs have a variety of career paths from which to choose. Within public accounting, you can work for any sized firm, ranging from a large, international CPA firm to a small local accounting practice. Within the firm, you can work in such areas as audit, tax and management consulting.
The same holds true in business and industry, where you can choose careers in companies of all sizes, working in diverse areas such as financial accounting and reporting, management accounting, financial analysis and treasury/cash management.
Within government, you can create a path to success at either the federal, state or local level. Non-profit organizations and education also offer many diverse opportunities.”
