Q: What is it like working as a Bookkeeper?

August 2015
"Keep a log."
Keep a log of all new things learned.
September 2015
It's very repetative, working with a for the majority younger, immature, group of people who's work ethic is probably not on the same level as yours. ** Don't ever work with family !
October 2015
"Workingback and forwards."
Stick to proper documentation. With a detailed working paper, meeting reportorial requirements, both inter and intra-agency, shall make your work less stressful. Tracing transactions and activities are lot easier. Stay with the rules, continually update yourself with the new issuances of memos, circulars, guidelines and policies set by the authority. Working back and forward will just be like walking under the moonlight.

"Job satisfaction and work flexibility."
Pros: As a bookkeeper, I have more flexibility on work hours. I do have specific tasks that need to be completed within specific timelines, but a large amount of my tasks don't require input from other employees in the office. Quickbooks knowledge is a must because the only way we can accurately determine our current financial state is if the information is entered correctly in Quickbooks.
Cons: Several tasks are completed over and over, month to month. The redundancy of these tasks gets to be difficult.
October 2015
"Pace revolves around events."
There will be quiet times for housekeeping essentials and there will be just do times.
October 2015
"High stress levels."
Get as much education as you can in as many areas as you can.
November 2015
Pros: It keeps me busy. There is always an inflow and out flow of things to do.
Cons: It can be difficult to keep up with the many vendors and billing.
