2024 Outlook

The job market is forecasted to continue its cool down in 2024 — sustaining the slow-growth trajectory that began in the second half of last year. In fact, ITR Economics notes the high quit rate that plagued many employers in 2022 has also ticked down, indicating candidates’ confidence of their position in the hiring landscape has waned.

But, for skilled accounting and finance professionals, the story is a different one. More than 300,000 accountants and auditors left the profession within the past several years — which is only exacerbated by the shortage of new talent entering the field.
