Accountants work with companies, governments and people to keep accurate financial records. They can also track and analyze budgets and offer financial planning and projections, which may lead to making important management decisions that affect the solvency of a company, a firm or an individual’s financial portfolio.
As the economy grows, more workers will be needed to prepare and examine financial records. Because of that, jobs for accountants are going to grow 6 percent by 2028. Accountants make $65K per year on average in the DC metro area. Entry level jobs require a bachelor’s degree. And there are 3,807 job openings annually in the DC metro area.

A personal financial advisor is a top job among people with a finance background. In this job, you’d work with individuals to help them manage their money and plan for their financial future. Financial advisors also have institutional clients—such as banks, insurance companies and other publicly held companies—or those whose employers are investment and private equity firms. Students in this track go on to careers in investor relations, investment banking, financial modeling, budget and financial analysis, too.
The need for financial advisors is projected to jump 7 percent by 2028, largely because we’re getting older and living longer. But helping folks manage their money is just one career path to consider. Financial advisors make $89K per year on average in the DC metro area. Entry level jobs require a bachelor’s degree. And there are 1,498 job openings annually in the DC metro area. For more information on LMI data click here.
