CPA Jobs

People in CPA jobs provide general accounting services to individuals, families, businesses, organizations, and government agencies.  CPA jobs may include helping clients prepare their tax returns, assisting families in planning estate management strategies, consulting with a non-profit group on proper bookkeeping and reporting practices, or serving as an independent auditor for a corporation performing internal verifications of accounting procedures.  Certified public accountants advise clients on all aspects of accounting and finance, and may also perform services such as maintaining copies of financial records, or filing tax returns and other documentation as needed.

In order to get CPA jobs, prospective accountants must pass the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination, which tests candidates on numerous aspects of accounting practices and procedures.  Many states also have educational requirements and minimum levels of experience that must be fulfilled.  Typically, in order to get certified and qualify for CPA jobs, you must have a minimum of two years of experience in the field of accounting, and at least a bachelor’s degree in an accounting-related field.

Individuals in CPA jobs may work as part of an accounting firm, operating in an office environment with other accounting professionals to provide financial services to clients.  Certified public accountants may also be self-employed, in which case they may work from home or from an office.  Some certified public accountants work as consultants offering independent auditing services, and this often means working from the road and traveling to client offices to review financial records and to monitor accounting practices.
