The accounting department of these organizations had a steady need for bookkeepers and accounting clerks to complete the regular accounting tasks. However, finding qualified employees was a challenge because there was always a shortage of individuals with the necessary accounting knowledge. Our firm is constantly seeking bookkeepers to assist our clients in maintaining their accounting records. Unfortunately this demand must often to unfilled, as we have had difficulty attracting qualified people. In fact, it often becomes necessary to reassign higher-level professionals (CPA and CPA candidates) from their other responsibilities to complete these basic accounting tasks due to the shortage of qualified paraprofessionals. Based on my professional accounting experience, I believe that the Basic Accounting and Bookkeeping course offered by UAC-The Accounting and Bookkeeping Center will provide students with the necessary skills to enter the above jobs. Many employment opportunities should be available for those who successfully complete this course.
