Accounting Clerk Jobs

People in accounting clerk jobs are responsible for handling the day-to-day details of accounting and bookkeeping, such as recording transactions, reconciling accounts, and generating account reports.  Some accounting clerk jobs include accounts payable clerks, who receive incoming payments and match them with accounts or work orders, bookkeepers, who reconcile revenue and expense accounts and balance general ledgers, banking clerks, who handle account documents, interest calculations, loan payment records and other duties, and audit clerks, who are responsible for verifying the work of other accountants and record-keepers as a fail-safe against inaccuracy or fraud.  Individuals in accounting clerk jobs must be detail-oriented and thorough.  Because accounting clerk jobs are considered entry-level positions, a high school diploma may be sufficient to get a job in this area.  However, an associate’s degree or a bachelor’s degree in business, finance, or accounting will be very helpful in getting hired as an accounting clerk.

Accounting clerks work in a variety of business environments.  Most accounting clerk jobs are found in offices, where they assist accountants and other finance professionals in the keeping of records, the verification of account data, and the preparation of reports, but accounting clerks may also work on job sites, and may be sent to remote offices for auditing and verification tasks.  Some accounting clerks work for accounting firms, and may be outsourced to client businesses on a temporary or permanent basis to augment the client’s accounting staff.
