Accounts Receivable Clerk Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Accounts Receivable Clerk in Fairfield:
"Scheduling daily routines and unexpected issues."
The first few years were fairly easy to complete the daily workload, but as the computer age took on more and more details that I no longer had to search and add to the invoices I created, I was given other tasks and time pressure became more and more an issue. Take the first 5 minutes in the day to schedule work. This might be a little difficult at first, but as you learn to stick to your schedule, it gets easier and you get more experienced in planning your routines and unexpected interruptions.
