In public accounting, no two days are the same as you work with different clients and interpret ever-changing tax laws. What is predictable is that CPA firms are by nature very stable businesses, providing financial stability and job security in good economic times and bad. While tax season can be hectic, technology offers more flexibility than ever, including the opportunity to work remotely. Working together with your KB team members, referral sources and other professionals, you’ll feel a sense of pride in becoming a catalyst for change in your community.
What many don’t realize about the accounting field is that there are many different opportunities for advancement and a variety of paths to explore as part of a CPA firm, including the ability to specialize.
