Employers Need Professionals with Accounting Training
Across Canada, employers are seeking professionals with accounting training, and just barely managing to fill positions with well trained applicants. Baby boomers are retiring and leaving good positions open and ready for the taking – and that’s on top of increased demand that already exists in the accounting field.
BC’s latest employment figures reveal that between the years 2012 and 2020, British Columbians can expect over 19,000 new jobs in accounting: 71% will be to replace retiring workers, and 29% will be from expansion in the field. It’s a similar story across the country. Service Canada has ranked the job outlook in accounting as “good”, which is the highest rating available!
Accounting Diploma Courses Can Help You Build Your Own Business
Across Canada, small businesses have thrived over the last several years, despite our sluggish economy. A new study from the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) reveals that small businesses have created 8 out of every 10 new private sector jobs in the last 12 months – boosted by healthy consumer spending.
It’s no surprise that many students pursue an accounting training program so they can either start their own venture, or better understand the logistics of bookkeeping in a business they already own.
College accounting programs are a fast and efficient way to learn the latest accounting skills and software – many diploma programs take as little as 12 months to complete.
Plus, programs include instruction in business writing and communications, entrepreneurship, internet fundamentals, and more, which is ideal for either the prospective business owner or a student looking to join an existing company or department.
