Hiring at Kearney

Here’s another sign that government is among the happening sectors when it comes to the job market for accountants. Consider the recent success of Kearney & Co. In 2008, the Alexandria, Va.-based firm, which specializes in government work, posted $48.62 million in revenues, a 51 percent increase over 2007. That was the largest percentage gain by far among firms ranked in Accounting Today’s most recent annual survey of the largest accounting firms in the U.S. It was also the second consecutive year that Kearney has posted a more than 50 percent revenue spike. 

Moreover, Kearney has continued hiring (NBC featured the company in a April 6 “Jobs 4 You” segment, which highlights organizations that are hiring in the downturn). Kearney is looking to continue its strong growth in 2009. It is currently looking to fill 14 positions. The openings include staff I and II accountants, a senior financial analyst and a military accounting specialist and a defense accountant/consultant at the firm’s headquarters and an Air Force financial manager at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
