Even if your position is secure, it’s natural to be a little skittish in our stuttering economy. It begs the question: Just how safe are Accounting jobs? According to a new report by Forbes, pretty darn safe.
The magazine’s recent list of “Top 10 recession-proof jobs” had three accounting titles on the list: Accounting Executive (No. 4), Accounting Staff (No. 5) and Finance Staff (No. 10).
While Accounting jobs may be among the safest, there are no guarantees of course. If you suspect your company may be looking to downsize in the future, you can best protect yourself by:
- keeping up to date on the latest technology
- being aware of industry trends, and
- ensuring your manager knows the true value of the work you do.
