Accounts Receivable Clerk Advice

Q: 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.

Accounts Receivable Clerk in New York:
"A Foot In The Door."
Accept your job with an open mind and know that this is a foot in the door not a career.
