One of the fastest-growing sectors in terms of hiring these days is accounting. For those with the right skills, there are expected to be an increasing number of opportunities over the next several years.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, through 2020, the number of jobs in accounting are expected to increase 15.7 percent, the Sacramento Bee reports. Those who are able to find work in the sector will make a median salary of $61,690, far higher than many other industries.

One of those who was able to find employment as an accountant is Grayson Moyse, 27, of Macias Gini and O'Connell. He said that the job was far more interactive than he had thought when he pursued a degree at Sacramento State.

"When I was in college, I didn't think it would be as people-oriented as it is. It's not being on a computer in a cubicle all day," said the Moyse in an interview with the source

There are other indicators that suggest that hiring for accountants will increase. The Robert Half Financial Hiring Index revealed that the executives in the West South Central region are planning to increase accounting and finance hiring by 1 percent.
