"It Is Very Challenging And Rewarding."

First and foremost since most bookkeepers and other office people sit a lot. Its very important to get some physical exercise into your daily routine such as walking at lunch and stretching. Joining a gym for routine exercise. A body that sits a lot can become uncomfortable which results in irritability etc. So getting physical will help not only your body but your mind. There are a lot of rewards to working for a good employer. Every employer type has different needs and therefore different duties may be needed. The normal is A/R, A/P, Collections, Payroll, Scheduling, customer service. Learning Microsoft Word and Excel are valuable skills. QuickBooks is a must. Being organized is my top priority and very important as you have different duties on different days. I think Outlook is a good tool for organizing emails and a busy schedule.

You are an outsider to all other departments and seen as an additional unwanted extra cost to a business. You don't make money for the organization and therefore are seen as an annoying 'must have' expense for the business. You are lucky if you find a business owner who values you. If you have a quiet personality and just want to keep your head down this is the job for you.
