The Accounting sector consists in providing services, such as auditing of accounting records, designing accounting systems, preparing financial statements, developing budgets, preparing tax returns, processing payrolls, bookkeeping, and billing.
The Finance and Insurance sector compromises the transactions involving the creation, liquidation, or change in ownership of financial assets.
“In the Dallas-Plano-Irving area, the share of jobs in finance and insurance is higher than in the nation, state, and even New York.”
While many occupations require technical training, employers have placed soft skills at the top of their priority list.
“From 2008 to 2018, Credit Card Issuing businesses experienced the strongest growth within the sector in the DFW region.”
