Resources: U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics Web site and Careers in Accounting Web site Post a 200- to 300-word response to the following: There are many career opportunities in the field of accounting. Visit the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics at http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos001.htm for an overview of the accounting field. ? Visit www.careers-in-accounting.com for additional details such as salary expectations and general job expectations. ? Locate three job postings (within your state) for positions in the field of accounting. ? Write a summary of the educational requirements for each position, the starting salary (if listed), and a brief description of the responsibilities of the position. Audit Work in audit involves checking accounting ledgers and financial statements within corporations and government. This work is becoming increasingly computerized and can rely on sophisticated random sampling methods. Audit is the bread and butter work of accounting. This work can involve significant travel and allows you to really understand how money is being made in the company that you are analyzing. It's great background!

One can assume because of the nature of the position that one must know the audit field and have some experience because the listing does not state that there is any on the job or “other” training. So I concur that experience but not degree is necessary.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
