Positions in Accounting Firms
Major- and mid-sized accounting firms are usually recruiting individuals who have experience in auditing and tax. On the other hand, small accounting firms of 5 to 10 employees are recruiting individuals with accounting experience or entry-level with an accounting degree. Most accounting firms offer a visa sponsorship as the position requires professional knowledge.
Location For Accounting Jobs
Accounting firms tend to concentrate in New York and California. However, accounting job openings of manufacturers are often seen in the Midwest and Southern parts of the U.S. due to the major Japanese automobile industries located in those areas.
Companies with many employees have a separate accounting department or a specific accounting role, therefore professional knowledge is essential and the skills required for the position vary on the company. On the other hand, in companies with a few employees, one person is responsible for all aspects of accounting work. These companies are looking for an individual who can respond flexibly to a wide range of tasks including administrative tasks.
