This decline can be attributed to technological advancements and automation that have streamlined many bookkeeping tasks.

On the other hand, the employment of accountants and auditors is projected to grow by 6 percent from 2020 to 2030, which is about as fast as the average for all occupations. The demand for accountants is driven by several factors, including globalization, increased scrutiny of financial practices, and evolving financial regulations.

While automation and technological advancements have automated certain routine tasks, they have also created a need for accountants and auditors with strong analytical and advisory skills. Accountants are increasingly expected to provide strategic financial guidance, data analysis, and risk assessment to organizations.

Learning bookkeeping and accounting enables finance professionals to conduct in-depth financial analysis. They can assess the financial performance of companies, identify trends, evaluate profitability, and identify areas for improvement.
