  3. All over the country similar scenes are playing out as accounting firms large and small sweeten the pot in order to lure or retain employees. The Big Four have doubled their assurance staffs in the past five years and are expected to nearly double them again in the next five, thanks largely to Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley. • ......."It's an extremely competitive hiring environment today," says Craig Nickerson, CFO of Dynetech Corp.,

  4. ......"We'll have an incredible shortage of accountants for the next 10 to 15 years," predicts Allan D. Koltin, president and CEO of PDI Global Inc., • ...... Money is certainly one way to get people's attention. Entry-level annual salaries now average $45,000, according to career-oriented Website Vault.com, a 9 percent increase over last year's rate, and accounting salaries are rising faster than the typical 5 percent increase in other professions. Once in the door, recent grads can expect to see raises of 5 to 10 percent a year. • ..... Fifty percent of CFOs surveyed say they do plan to loosen the purse strings not only to attract new hires but to retain current staff as well.
