In this study, a questionnaire form was applied to measure the burnout and job satisfaction levels of accounting professionals. First, the demographic features of the participants were examined in terms of frequency and percentage. Later, the analyses of whether the averages of responses given to the three subscales of burnout and two subscales of the job satisfaction questionnaire by the participants are different or not were made via one-way anova. Moderate burnout was identified in emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and personal accomplishment subscales. The averages of expressions in this scale are between “sometimes” and “very rare”. The levels of emotional exhaustion are decreasing as professionals move in their professional careers. The averages of the responses to the statements in the Minnesota job satisfaction questionnaire are between “satisfied” and “absolutely satisfied”. Becoming a license holder and getting close to it is a factor that increases job satisfaction. In addition, as the members of the professions move towards the ownership of the business, the job satisfaction increases.
