I have a question for all of you that may seem to be a simple one for some. A few months ago, I had a lot more questions, but I have overcome and met most of them. I have a service related business specializing in tax work, (this year was my second one here), providing bus. advice for start-up`s to indiv. interested in it, billing/bookkeeping as well, and computer designing of advertising materials and other things. (These are all things I am really interested in too).
I have just graduated college with an Accounting/Bus. Admin. degree, and have only training in that one area, which is also my concern. With jobs being slow, and bookkeeping advertising seeming to be not much openly done, I am trying to figure how to approach it.
I also would like to gain more experience in the bookkeeping area by landing any kind of work in this new field, but am having trouble finding that first job of any type. Even though I demonstated my knowledge with a "With Honors, 3.6 degree", that does not mean much to others. This is one of the reasons I have wanted to start my own business, to be able to show experience to others, as well as wanting to be able to do this kind of work on my own. But I am now wondering if stating I work on my own is not such a good thing to do for those small firms who only want a part time bookkeeper. Any thoughts on this? Thanks, HenryR
