Accountants and Auditors
Employment of accountants and auditors is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This is due to business growth, changing tax and finance laws, and increased regulation of financial practices across all businesses. There have been several notable scandals in the accounting industry in recent years, and this accounts for much of the increased scrutiny of and changing legislation in this industry.
