Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 2, 2008
Despite an overall decrease within specific sector hiring plans, most Fortune 500 member firms plan on modest increases to current Tax, General Accounting & Reporting headcount. Charlotte NC based Coalesce Inc. (CoalesceSearch.com) sees no current downturn within these disciplines and sees growth within the Tax and General Accounting to be moderately strong near term.
While headcount decreases on overall "business driving" positions, the need has remained steady for the operational aspects of core business values. Overall budget restraints are also leading many Fortune 500 firms to consider adding more "in house" Tax and General Accounting headcount, therefore decreasing exposure to non essential consulting fees or outsourcing of general accounting services.
The relative growth seems at odds considering current labor market trends. "Demand for CPA candidates is still routinely the top request from our clients", said Frank Cappella, President and CEO of Charlotte based Executive Search Firm Coalesce Inc. Cappella maintains that he expects that while overall company headcount may shrink, he adds, "I don't see many mid to large cap firms ceasing the need to build a more streamlined and qualified in-house Accounting team, which is essential when working with your external audit teams".
Overall growth within the Accounting discipline remains one of the most resilient, even as overall hiring may diminish through current hiring trends.
