Accounting Clerk Resume Sample

Accounting clerks usually work in accounting departments by carrying out several tasks such as verifying the accuracy of financial documents and gathering information to prepare statements. Although a high school diploma is the minimum requirement to get a position as an accounting clerk, a bachelor degree in accounting or business is highly required by most companies. Since these professionals are better prepared, they usually are hired by larger companies which have accounting departments.
