Public Accountant Job Overview

Public accountants typically work in an accounting or finance department of a company. Unlike a certified public accountant position, which requires a bachelor's degree and passing a certification exam, a public accountant position usually only requires an interest in the subject matter and the ability to manage books. Public accountants don't have to take licensing exams, have a college degree in accounting or maintain any certification through continuing education. Their job duties might include:
  • Running and working with QuickBooks or other basic accounting software
  • Preparing financial statements
  • Prepare tax returns (if a public accountant does this, they must pass a test with the IRS)
  • Understand financials of a business, including cash flow, equity, balance sheets and charts of accounts

Public Accountant Job Education Requirements

A public accountant should have an interest in managing finances and bookkeeping. No specific education is generally required for the position, although some positions may require previous experience in accounting. If an accountant wants to become a certified public accountant, he or she would have to take an exam administered in the state of employment. Additionally, certified public accountants have to continue their education in order to maintain the licensure. Public accountants only have to obtain a license from the IRS if they prepare and file tax returns.

Public Accountant Job Market

Accounting jobs are growing as federal and state regulations become stricter for businesses of all sizes. Internal verifiers serve an important role to eliminate fraud and waste for a company, which can help save them money. For this reason, the job market for public accountants is increasing as companies look for qualified and skilled professionals to take on this role for their departments. By 2022, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 13.1 percent growth for public accounting jobs. U.S. News and World Report ranks public accounting as #3 on the list of Best Business Jobs.

Public Accountant Job Salary Information

The salary range for a public accountant can vary depending on experience and skill level. The median salary for a public accountant in the country is $63,550, but the highest 10 percent of public accountants earned over $110,000 per year. The jobs that pay the highest tend to be in the federal executive branch of the government and securities and commodities in the metropolitan areas of the United States. It is certainly a career opportunity with room for growth and advancement, with security and stability for many years.
