Experts Plan 'Hangout' to Help You Better Understand the Accounting Career Path

It’s understandable to think that a career in accounting might be too old, too boring or too clichéd for an up-and-comer like yourself. After all, it’s a profession that’s been around for more than 500 years. But maybe you should think again.  

The accounting career path is as unique as its history. Filled with twists, turns, confusing credentials and a projected growth of around 16 percent through 2020, this is a field that can provide you with the skills and expertise to become much more than just the boring accountant next door.

That’s why Rasmussen College’s January Hangout on Air Career Chat is focused on careers in accounting.

Whether you are interested in learning more about the different accounting career paths to see if it’s right for you or if you are already working toward a career in accounting, our career chat experts can provide you with valuable information about finding your place in the field.
