Why You Should Consider Temporary Work as an Accountant

Most accountants recognize the value of money, which is why some of them decide to take on part-time or temporary work in the field. The freelance economy is booming, with statistics showing that up to 50% or more of Americans will work freelance in the next ten years. The way we work is changing and accountants are and will be affected by these trends in the coming years. What are the rewards of taking on an additional freelance or temporary assignment? Are there benefits besides financial that come with a temporary accounting job?

Accountants and Temporary Work

Many accountants have moved beyond taxing preparation and filing and into high-end business advisory and planning roles. It makes sense, with competition from a host of do-it-yourself software products, to become more of a trusted advisor instead of focusing on the tasks associated with financial reporting. How does accounting fit within the broader framework of consulting and advisory services?

Generally, we see temporary positions run the gamut from one-off straightforward activities to more sophisticated engagements that run longer-term. In either case some of the clear benefits of taking these roles on include:

Job flexibility is the new normal and the American workforce now has options available to them that simply didn’t exist even ten years ago. Accountants now have a variety of flexible work arrangements available that could be perfect if you’re new to the profession, want to make a job switch, or perhaps are not quite ready to seek retirement.
