Bleak news reports aside, if you’re looking for a new challenge, now’s the time to polish your resume. Along with tax credits and new spending, the recently passed stimulus package is expected to lead to more jobs for Accounting pros of all stripes, according to Financial Week.

Who stands to benefit the most? Folks who have compliance-specific experience.
