Accountants and auditors have a median wage significantly higher than the national median wage, are expected to experience above average job growth, and have moderate entry requirements.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports a 2019 median wage of $71,550 per yer for accountants and auditors, significantly higher than the 2019 national median wage of $39,810 per year. The BLS projects 6% job growth between 2018 an 2028 for accountants and auditors, slightly faster than the projected 5% average job growth for all industries in the same period. Accountants and auditors need a minimum of a bachelor's degree, and those filing reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will need to be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Requirements to become a CPA vary by state, but typically include earning a minimum of 150 credit hours from an accredited college or university and passing the four part Uniform CPA Examination from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
