Work Long Hours


While some accountants may be able to enjoy a regular 40-hour workweek,
others are required to work much longer hours. This is especially true for selfemployed accountants who have many clients who rely on them, and for
accountants in specialized fields. For example, tax accountants often need to work
a grueling amount of hours during the tax season. In addition to the actual time it
takes to balance the books, accounts will also need to schedule times to meet with
clients, which may entail significant travel time.
Continuing Education Requirements



Almost all states require certified public accountants, or CPAs, to meet
annual continuing education requirements in order to maintain and renew their
license. Continuing education is important to keep accountants abreast of new laws
and regulations that affect their line of work. Depending on where the CPA lives,

programs. The exact requirements will vary with each state, so it's important to
check your state's laws to make sure you're in compliance.

accountants can be held criminally liable for fraud if they are found to purposely
alter the books.

An unfair disadvantage to being an accountant is the negative stereotype that
some people have of the profession. Some view accountants as antisocial
individuals who only like to figure out math problems and crunch numbers. Others
view accountants as boring and unimaginative. To make matters worse, in recent
years the public has been able to see the negative ripple effect that happens when
accounting is done wrong. Consider the fallout of the Enron incident as an
example.
