The Job Market for Accounting and Payroll Administrators

3 MAR 2014

These days, more and more people are taking matters of employment into their own hands and starting their own businesses. Entrepreneurship is at an all-time high, and people have decided that if they want a rewarding career, they’d better take action themselves. What this means is that there is now a growing need for qualified and dependable individuals to handle the finance part of these businesses. Accounting and payroll administrators are in high demand right now, because the rigors of financial calculations and payroll deductions can be quite confusing for those running their own businesses, or for companies just getting off the ground. This great blog post by Herzing College in Winnipeg examines the wealth of job prospects that are available to graduates of accounting and payroll administration programs, and how you could even become your own boss with the right attitude and training. Check it out.

“If you’ve taken accounting and payroll administration courses, you could also offer your services as a freelance bookkeeper. There are a ton of tiny businesses and one-person operations that can’t afford to hire a full-time accountant or bookkeeper, but are willing to hire someone part time to come in and keep their books neat and tidy for them. Because it’s usually a few-and-far-between kind of job, you have the potential to work with multiple clients, make your own hours and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with being your own boss and managing your own little business.”
