Accounting

Overview

Bookkeepers and accounting clerks record daily financial transactions and can run reports of financial information for managers. They spend most of their time at an office, frequently on a computer. Opportunities are available both full- and part-time. Accountants work more closely with budget and financial analysis, helping managers and owners to make informed business decisions. Some specialties, such as auditing, can involve significant travel. The stereotype of accountants as "bean-counters" has undergone major change as managers work side-by-side with accountants to develop new business opportunities.
