Accountant

How to become an Accountant.

Accountants get their name from the type of work they do - keeping accounts in order. The field of accounting is probably an ancient one, dating back to the first time humans needed to keep records of inventory or transactions. Accountants are still in high demand today, working in every conceivable field in private and public life. Most accountant jobs require a minimum of a bachelor's degree in a field related to accounting, but job prospects are generally better for those who either have a master's degree or become a Certified Public Accountant.

Depending on the state, experience in the accounting field may be necessary before becoming a CPA. In addition, accountants must generally complete a certain amount of professional development or continuing education to renew their licenses.

Public accountants can work for any of the types of clients mentioned above, and often focus on one area. For example a public accountant may choose to focus on tax preparation or accounting systems, or even audit financial records, either as an internal or external auditor. Many public accountants are CPAs. Government accountants obviously work for the government, and work specifically with the financial records of government agencies and contractors hired by the government. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is just one government agency employing a significant number of accountants. Management accountants are sometimes called corporate or private accountants and work for private companies. They may have the responsibility of creating or maintaining budgets, creating cost/benefit analyses, and influencing business decisions. Accountants may also work with individuals...
