Several U.S. accounting firms are actively seeking qualified professionals in 2013. In fact, some companies are struggling to find qualified candidates to fill vacancies, which has led these businesses to invest more resources in their recruiting.??

For example, CPA Practice Advisor reports that senior accounting positions were hard to fill during the fourth quarter of 2012. Despite the efforts of many accountants to ramp up for the tax season, many of these professionals often struggled??to find trained, experienced specialists who could immediately contribute.??

“Mentioning [specific topics] would exclude too many good candidates,” Michael Costa, a partner at New York accounting firm??Armao, Costa & Ricciardi, told the news source. “We decided instead to hire smart people and train them in [certain aspects].”

However, a wide variety of specialists are available to assist accounting firms, and these representatives may help such businesses grow in 2013. As the tax deadline approaches for many U.S. business operators and citizens, people may seek support from accountants who can deliver reliable assistance with their tax returns. Meanwhile, accounting companies may increase their work teams and keep qualified professionals on staff for extended periods of time.??
