  1. Accounts Payable and Receivable. If you’re looking for an entry level accounting position, many professionals get their start in AP or AR positions. In fact, AP/AR is a good way to learn more about the industry before deciding to continue in education to advance your career.
  2. Staff Accountant. The primary difference between a staff accountant and a contract accountant is that you are a permanent employee at the company where you work. Many organizations, especially larger businesses, will work with a staff accountant who is dedicated solely to their business. You would be in charge of all accounting needs for your employer.
  3. Financial Analyst. This role works to help companies or clients make investment choices based on the changes within the market from day to day or week by week. Analysts determine the viability and risk of financial decisions and make recommendations based on ratings.
  4. Tax Accountant. They say the only sure things in life are death and taxes. There will never not be a need for specialized tax accountants. CPAs, Enrolled Agents, and other tax professionals have experience navigating the Internal Revenue Service and advising their clients about financial matters related to their tax filings each quarter or during tax season.
