With tax season fast approaching in the U.S., the demand for qualified accountants is on the rise—but you don’t need to work in a brick-and-mortar office to take advantage of seasonal accounting roles.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs in accounting are expected to grow as much as 6% from 2018 to 2028.
Looking ahead to 2020, the following remote-friendly companies, highlighted in Virtual Vocations’ latest report and listed in no particular order, will be leading the charge:
- Intuit Inc.
- H&R Block, Inc.
- Supporting Strategies
- Beech Valley Solutions
- Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc.
- Profitwise Accounting
- SmartBooks Corp.
- Summit CPA Group
With headquarters all across the country, from California to Florida to New York, the above employers are looking for qualified accountants to fill seasonal roles that can be done either partially or entirely remotely.
These openings include job titles like seasonal tax preparer, virtual accounting services manager, bilingual (Spanish-speaking) tax support associate, and telecommute tax research specialist. And with over 700 more remote accounting jobs currently on Virtual Vocations’ comprehensive remote job board, jobseekers can quickly find positions to apply to immediately.
“With an 11% increase in remote accounting jobs posted to our jobs database in 2019 compared to the year prior, there has never been a better time to transition to working remotely as a professional with accounting experience,” said Virtual Vocations CEO and co-founder Laura Spawn. “Tax season is a great time to connect with employers who are looking for remote tax specialists, many of which transition the positions to general remote accounting roles throughout the year.”
