What Accounting Graduates Do


A career in financial recordkeeping

Accounting program graduates work in large and small business and government offices performing a wide variety of financial recordkeeping duties. In roles such as accounting clerk, payroll clerk, accounts payable clerk, and account receivable clerk, they use computers to handle financial transactions and update and maintain accounting records.

Accounting job responsibilities

The specific job responsibilities may vary—from posting details of transactions to monitoring loans and accounts to handling accounts payable and receivable—but all accounting clerks make numerous computations each day, and use computers to calculate and record data.

The skills you need

Increasingly, careers in accounting demand a high degree of comfort with computers. People who choose careers in accounting are also generally careful and detail-oriented, with good communications skills and the ability to be discreet with sensitive financial information.
