The number of tax consultants in Central Java registered at the Indonesian Tax Consultant Association is still limited, likewise, the number of accountants with licensing practices is still small, and making the career opportunities of tax consultants and auditors remain open. This study aims to provide a perspective for career interests in taxation and auditing for accounting students. This study used a quantitative approach by distributing questionnaires to the respondents. The research population involved accounting students who had taken audit and tax courses. The sampling method employed purposive sampling. 270 accounting students at state and private universities in Semarang– Indonesia were chosen. The analysis technique used Warp Partial Least Square (PLS). The results revealed that labor market motivation and considerations positively affected career interests in the taxation and audit fields. Self-efficacy also had a positive effect on career interests in the audit field but not on tax career interests. Besides, gender influenced career interests in auditing. In contrast to the expectation, this study found that gender did not influence career interests in tax. In conclusion, this study can provide information in explaining career interests in the taxation and audit fields, although the ability to explain is still limited.
