The Internal Revenue Service is looking to hire. And these are not tax time, part-time positions. These are permanent, full-time jobs.
Keli Singleton, IRS National Recruiter in Independence, says there is money available to hire people and the agency is looking for recruits – especially those wanting to be revenue agents. She says anyone wanting one of those jobs will need to possess a degree in accounting and/or a CPA license.
“We’re recruiting, right now, for revenue agents,” said Singleton. “And revenue agents require 30 hours of accounting.”
Work experience is not essential, but is an asset.
“Basic accounting or any type of professional accounting work,” explained Singleton. “But anyone that has just a bachelor’s degree in accounting will qualify for the job – but persons that have actually worked in the field or the industry would be more qualified.”
The IRS has a variety of different positions available in addition to revenue agents. They include administrative clerks, engineers, financial analysts, and economists. Potential hires include recent college graduates, out of work professionals, and professionals looking for new challenges.
