Job Market Wide Open For Accountants

According to the most recent survey by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, enrollment in undergraduate accounting programs has increased 19% between the years 2000 and 2004. Ever since the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the demand for accountants has been strong. Top accounting firms are paying an average starting salary of $52,000 to recent college grads who majored in the field and top graduates may earn as much as $57,000 to start.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, the fourth largest accountng firm in New York City, has even created a separate campus candidate career portal to attract top talent. In addition, they recruit year-round and forge relationships with students as early as their sophomore year through classroom programs and leadership and teamwork conferences.
