Posted by Daniel Ackerly on August 13, 2018 in Business,Business Analyst,Accountants,Accountancy,New York Times article NEW YORK (AP) The number of U.S. accountants training to handle online transactions is at a record high, and it’s the largest the industry has seen in nearly two decades, according to a report released Wednesday by a new group.
Accountancy firm Deloitte said it hired 2,945 people for training last year.
That is more than the 2,811 people it trained in 2013, a year before the financial crisis hit.
The numbers are more than triple the 1,924 people it hired in 2016, a record year for training in the industry.
Deloitte says there is more demand for online accountancy than there is for all the other fields, and online accounts account for about 80 percent of the business.
It says the growing number of online workers, many of them millennials, are needed to help with business and finance, and to help meet the increasing demand for help in areas like technology, finance and accounting.
The training is being done in a number of ways, including online.
It’s training in all aspects of digital, digital, financial and digital accounting, including digital payment processing.
In addition, Deloisees digital, business and digital accountants train in areas such as online customer service, tax, legal and tax planning.
In addition, the training includes a virtual session to help the new employees learn about their industry.
The National Association of Accountants said the training is important because there is no set curriculum and many people do not have the skills to prepare for the job.
The group has a website where it offers advice to anyone who is interested in pursuing an accounting career.
