A public accountant is a financial professional who works in a public accounting firm and provides financial services to businesses, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and individual clients.

You may work overtime hours at peak times of the year, such as tax season and around quarterly tax filing deadlines.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
