Career Education Addresses the Shortage of Skilled Accountants in America

(Washington, DC – August 5, 2016)– This month the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 7.8 million Americans are unemployed, while at the same time 5.5 million jobs remain unfilled in America.

Accountants can also expect to make a good living – median wages were estimated at $67,190 per year in 2015.
