JennifersLost Posted November 13, 2012 Share Posted November 13, 2012 I'm looking for a way to supplement my current income, and possibly as a job to switch to in order to really secure things for my retirement. In other words - I may be interested in doing some bookkeeping on the side, but if a great job with benefits came up that looked like there'd be some challenge to it, I would be willing to go full time. I have a BA in English. I took Accounting 150 (a basic accounting overview) at the local CC a couple of years ago. I do my own (very complicated) taxes. I'm analytical, sharp, and can handle the math. 1. How can I get from here to bookkeeping most efficiently - making a minimum of $20./hr? 2. What would I need to land a "better" bookkeeping/accounting position? I.E., something with a salary of $50,000 or more? I know this is vague, and it's regional, etc., but any advice is appreciated. I found out that Sage Simply Accounting has two online classes it offers for certification in Simply Accounting. I think many companies here is BC use Simply Accounting. Is that enough to get started, or should I do something else? TIA! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
