Florida's economy is varied, and while it was hit hard by the recession, the state rebounded vigorously.  Its unemployment rate dropped by half between 2011 and 2017 according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity stated that the median income among accountants in the state was $63,294 as of 2016. Experience has a big impact in the level of pay an accountant can expect to receive: the average entry-level wage is $44,242, while senior-level positions averaged $85,134. Location and industry also make a difference, and working in a traditional certified public accounting (CPA) firm may open doors to higher salaries.

Hospitality has traditionally been one of the leading industries in Florida, and state’s website states that the tourism industry has an impact of $67 billion on the economy of Florida. With big companies like Disney, Universal Orlando and Carnival leading the way, hiring in this sector continues to grow despite a soft economy. Financial services is also a strong industry, with national companies like Raymond James and local companies like the Bank of Tampa. The headquarters of national retailers SteinMart and Eckerd are also found in Florida. Technology is another prominent sector, with Convergys and Citrix being among the major employers.

As in most states, getting licensed as a certified public accountant (CPA) in Florida requires a bachelor's degree. To obtain your license, you'll need to obtain a year of work experience under the supervision of a CPA. Once you earn your license, you'll need to complete continuing education courses to maintain it.

The Florida Institute of CPAs (http://www.ficpa.org/content/home.aspx) offers statewide opportunities for continuing education and networking. The Florida Society of Accountants (http://www.fsacct.org) caters to small and sole practitioner firms and has seven chapters around the state. For certified management accountants (CMAs), the Institute for Management Accountants' Florida Council (http://www.flcouncil.org) offers programs and continuing education.
