Benefits to Being a TXCPA

According to the DOL’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of accountants and auditors is projected to grow 6% from 2021 to 2031. If you are looking to further your accounting or auditing career, a CPA license is one way to set yourself apart as a trained expert.

The Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants recently released the 2022-2023 TXCPA Employer Guide, which highlights the benefits that come from becoming a licensed CPA in Texas, a few of which are summarized below:

  • Job Satisfaction – Perform highly specialized job functions and recognize that businesses benefit from CPA services
  • Benefits – New CPAs may earn 10% more than non-CPAs, along with above-average employment growth
  • Career Development – Demonstrate commitment to the profession and show expertise beyond a “standard” accountant
  • Career Security – CPAs are in more demand than ever as retiring CPAs are leaving a gap in the market
  • Career Options – Choose from a variety of careers across public accounting, corporate, government, education, nonprofit, consulting, and entrepreneurship

In addition to these benefits that come from getting certified, there are other powerful resources that are now available through TXCPA’s website. These resources include helpful information on the CPA license, steps to becoming a CPA, TXCPA scholarships and resources, and a directory of Texas employers who hire top-tier talent. Their website also offers a TXCPA Career Center where members can review job postings and apply online.
