From the Paper:

"The vocational field of accounting is one that makes a requirement of at least a bachelor's degree in the field of accounting or in a related field. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-09 Edition published by the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics "opportunities will be best for jobseekers who have a master's degree, obtain certification or licensure or who are proficient in the use of accounting and auditing computer software." (US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2009) It is additionally reported that there will be "faster-than-average growth of accountant and auditor jobs" resulting from "an increase in the number of businesses, changing financial laws and regulations, and greater scrutiny of company finances." (U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2009)
"It is stated by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics that accountants and auditors "...help to ensure that the Nation's firms are run efficiently, its public records kept accurately, and its taxes paid properly and on time. They analyze and communicate financial information for various entities such as companies, individual clients, and government. Beyond carrying out the fundamental tasks of the occupation--preparing, analyzing, and verifying financial documents in order to provide information to clients--many accountants also offer budget analysis, financial and investment planning, information technology consulting, and limited legal services." (2009)"
