Hi I have been in the Finance and Accounting profession for 29 years. I worked as the Senior Financial Analyst for a nuclear power company and was promoted to a Project Manager. In the role of project manager I was still responsible for my organization's budget and financial reporting. Once you have a few years of experience you can acquire a very good paying job in the finance field. You may have to start out as a bookkeeper or entry level accountant which typically pays $35k to $40k. However, once you have 3 years of experience under your belt you can market your skills and land jobs paying $60 to $100k. I recently retired from my Corporate job and I am running my own practice. Public Accounting is very different from Corporate Accounting. I actually like it better because I am able to apply everything I learned in college; whereas working in a Corporation I was only responsible for a small piece of the pie which was budgeting, financial analysis and cost control. I never looked at Consolidated Financial Statements and never worked on the receivables or billing side of the business. I believe finance and accounting are the most lucrative fields in the area of business. All businesses need finance and accounting people it is a field in demand.
Can you anser
