Continued demand for financial professionals and a lack of candidates available for open positions are leading to higher salaries for those with highly sought skills. U.S. average starting salaries for accounting and finance professionals are projected to increase an average of 3.4 percent next year, according to Robert Half’s newly released 2014 Salary Guide. Financial and business systems analysts are in demand, and the market for internal auditors and entry-level accountants also has strengthened.
In addition to the guide, a related Salary Center and Salary Calculator shed light on hiring and compensation trends for more than 350 accounting, finance and financial services positions. More information about these resources is available in our multimedia news release.
