The 5 Biggest Benefits of Getting Your CPA

Tags: , , ,

There are many paths for a potential accounting professional so how do you know exactly which is right for you? Becoming a Certified Public Accountant is one of the most popular avenues for taking your career to the next level. Before you make a commitment, you should evaluate if the process is right for you. Here are some of the benefits of becoming a CPA.

  1. Recognition. There really is no arguing that CPA is the title most people associate with the accounting industry in general. Therefore, a CPA designation on your resume will be noticed immediately.
  2. Career security. Over the last several years there has been a shortage of professional accountants entering the market. This means someone with a CPA is far more likely to retain a position than someone without.
  3. Earning potential. Money isn’t everything but it is certainly essential to a successful career. A CPA earns 10% more than their non-certified professional counterpart. You may also have access to additional benefits.
  4. Job satisfaction. A CPA isn’t pigeonholed in just one aspect of accounting. They have experience in conducting audits, consulting, information technology, financial reporting, taxes and many other aspects of the industry.
  5. Career development. For an entry level accounting professional, the CPA designation on a resume will offer the opportunity to grow within a firm. You may be hired at the ground floor but your certification will earn you the ability to transform your career.
