MARCUM PHILADELPHIA has recently added several experienced staff, and we are currently looking to fill a few more open positions. We are hiring at least three new graduates in January as well. Our hiring plans for next year are just getting started, but we expect to add at least a similar number of new graduates in the coming cycle. The market for accounting staff is shifting. At the beginning of the year there was lack of hiring. The graduates are now entering the job market with more credits in accounting. Also, there has been more interest in accounting as a profession and a career in public accounting following the decline in Wall Street.
