- It seems there’s a shortage of these professionals, thanks to retiring baby boomers and a decline in the number of students in accounting programs, so companies are offering more remote or hybrid accounting jobs.
- The position has a low risk for layoffs, according to experts, and comes with a decent paycheck. The average salary for accountants in the U.S. is about $68-thousand, according to ZipRecruiter data, while more experienced accountants can earn anywhere from $150-thousand to more than $200-thousand a year.
