Ohio Accounting Degree Options


A career in accounting is a career with options. You have the opportunity to work in a wide variety of organizations, from certified public accountant (CPA) firms to Fortune 500 multinationals and entrepreneurial start-ups to nonprofits.

The employment projections through 2022 produced by Ohio's Department of Job & Family Services lists accountants and auditors among the top ten fastest growing employment occupations in the state. Indeed, CareerBuilder.com lists over 800 jobs in organizations as diverse as banks, such as Fifth Third, which is headquartered here in Ohio, and Toys "R" Us. Entry-level accounting wages average $45,845 in Ohio, while experienced accountants average $82,472. The best jobs require at least a bachelor's degree in accounting. Qualifying as a CPA is another requirement for most openings.

Ohio is a banking center, so you can expect to find most jobs in the financial services sector with local banks and national banks like JPMorgan Chase and Citi. Allied services, like credit card processor First National Processing, also are hiring in Ohio. Health care is a growth field with jobs available at Nationwide Children's Hospital and Omnicare. In addition to the jobs posted on Monster.com and CareerBuilder, dozens of recruiters, like Dawson and Robert Half, offer opportunities in the state.

Networking is an important part of building a career in any field. A number of national accounting professional organizations are active in Ohio. The American Accounting Association (http://aaahq.org/ohio/about.cfm) has an active Ohio Region branch in Huron. The Institute of Management Accountants has an Ohio chapter that serves cities across the state (http://ohio.imanet.org/). Also active locally in the state is the Ohio Society of CPAs (http://www.ohioscpa.com/). In addition to providing you with networking opportunities, these organizations provide support for state-mandated continuing education that is a requirement for keeping your CPA qualifications current.
