How can you stand out?
First, any employer wants to see that you are registered in your state as a certified accountant. This means you probably have to take the CPA exam to earn the necessary licenses or certifications to work as an accountant.
All accountants have to stay up to on new technology and laws in accounting as well, so most states require Continuing Professional Education (CPE) courses. Having completed these hours and even getting extra training will help your resume stand out.
Become a member of an organization like AICPA (the American Institute of CPAs). This added qualification will separate you from other accountants and show employers your commitment to accounting practices.
Having experience in several different industries can also help. Do you have any accounting experience with non-profits? Have you worked in a large accounting firm? A wide range of relevant experience shows employers that you can take on a variety of accounting challenges.
Employers also note that technology skills are hugely important. Proficiency in programs like Microsoft Excel is clearly a prerequisite for success. Familiarity with dozens of accounting software programs will also help you adapt to changes in the marketplace.
