The competition for accounting talent is one of the greatest challenges facing public accounting firms today. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for accountants and auditors is 2.4%, which is well below the national unemployment rate.

The Ohio CPA Foundation provides insight and information on accounting careers through programs such as ACAP-Ohio, the ASCEND Leadership Conference, High School Accounting Career Days and ASPIRE!
