Finance and Accounting Survey Results

July 25, 2013
Finance and Accounting Survey Results

According to a recent survey from Monster.com, finance and accounting professionals are among the most satisfied individuals with their current position – with 36 percent of respondents indicating that they are pleased with all aspects of their job.

 

The survey, which polled nearly 6,000 registered Monster users on their insight and sentiment of the job market, revealed that 80 percent of finance and accounting professionals are also confident that they could secure a new position in the industry. However, a vast majority (80 percent) believe that compensation is not keeping up with the current marketplace.

 

Other findings to note include the number of respondents who believe that there are more job openings now than there were a year ago (43 percent), yet finding a job in a market saturated with qualified finance talent has become more challenging (76 percent). Recent statistics from Monster.com back these sentiments, indicating that the website receives a new finance and accounting resume every 100 seconds, while finance jobs are viewed more than 5.6 million times a month.

 

For those 46 percent of respondent who identified that they are willing to relocate for the right opportunity, Monster identified the top locations for the finance and accounting job market:

 

  • New York
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • Washington D.C.
  • Atlanta

 

Monster also identified the top five finance and accounting positions based on volume and demand:

 

  • Accountants
  • Management Analysts
  • Market Research Analyst
  • Marketing Specialists
  • Human Resource Specialists
  • Loan Officers
