Accounting clerks are responsible for reviewing and maintaining accounting records. They enter balances and calculate interest on loans, bank accounts, and credit accounts using accounting spreadsheets and databases or accounting software programs. They may also review invoices and reconcile account statements, investigate any discrepancies, and generate financial reports on a regular basis. Accounting clerks work for all types of businesses. An accounting clerk's tasks tend to be more specialized when working for larger companies that have an entire accounting department, where their duties often include providing assistance to the Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Math and detail-oriented skills High ethical standards and professionalism, since they are often responsible for the banking and bookkeeping of a business Familiarity with computer technology and knowledge of a variety of software programs Ability to interact well with others
Associate's degree programs generally focus on basic accounting procedures, as well as skills in computerized accounting techniques. For those who have a high school diploma, accounting coursework from a postsecondary educational institution is often helpful, even without a degree. A bachelor's degree is not necessary for a career as an accounting clerk, though some clerks who have bachelor's degrees may be able to move more quickly to a senior accounting position. Regardless of formal education, however, the majority of accounting clerks usually must complete a period of on-the-job training.
