Bookkeeping career advice ? What's the best way to break into the bookkeeping field ? I was thinking getting certified in Quickbooks would give me a running start. college degrees are a waste of time in my opinion. Waste of time AND money. the way the economy seems to be going these days.

take accounting classes at

community college - get some accounting knowledge so you somewhat understand what you are doing in quickbooks

quickest way to fuck up someones general ledger is to have someone who states - but I know quickbooks - but doesn't know dick about accounting

Take accounting classes at a - - -

Junior College or Community College, they even give (sell) quickbooks classes. Get a degree. It's an investment in yourself that cannot be measured by traditional ROI standards.

While you may think that college background is a waste, if a hiring manager was to look at

Candidate 1 - Has a proven committment to accounting and bookkeeping by spending several years studying, getting a degree, maybe a masters, and going out ane getting background internship jobs at beginners pay levels, and joing national organizations for the betterment of themselves, and the profession, and attending national meetings to learn even more, get others ideas, and contacts.

Candidate 2 - Really "interested" in bookkeeping, went to Intuit and spent $500 - 800 to get QuickBooks certified, then tried to hire on as an employed, or self employed bookkeeper.

Who would you hire? Who would you pay to be your bookkeeper?

College degrees are a

waste of time if you have low aspirations.

But as others say, you should take an accounting course or two at a local community college.

QB certified is good too - but only after you have an understanding of what a set of books is and how it works.

good luck

Agree on Taking Accounting Classes with addt'l

I agree, the community college route is the way to go. It will help you build a strong foundation for little investment.

While there, you can take advantage of self-study too (obviously, by joining a forum, it seems you are up to date on all of the web resources available to you). Get on Linked In, join some groups, and start posting! Follow some experts on Twitter also. Peruse the web for blogs and experts to learn from (QuickBooks and small business blog here: http://quickbooksquandary.wordpress.com/). You can spend the time while at school building your own personal brand online.
