    How high of a degree? Associates? Bachelors? I have a bachelor’s in accounting and I am a CPA working for a public accounting firm performing audits of financial statements…..no tax at all. You can also work as an accountant for a business, and believe it or not…the FBI and the CIA are very desperate to hire people with Accounting degrees….especially with a CPA license.

    depending on your degree, but here are some options:
    - accounting / bookkeeping clerk
    - accounting manager (financial accounting, cost accounting, tax accounting)
    - controller
    - CFO

    Entities hiring – all, including for profit companies, non-for-profits, governmental entities. Examples may be banks, manufacturing companies, IRS, public accounting companies… even FBI, as was noted above.

    if you have a cpa, then it’s a pretty big plus to you
