Accounting and Bookkeeping Professionals-Make Money Working from Home

Besides starting your own CPA firm or Bookkeeping business, there are several other options to work from home as an accounting professional. If you have a degree in Accounting or any other financial area, or have worked in the financial industry as a bookkeeper, accounting clerk, payroll assistant, AP/AR clerk, then consider the option of working at home online. Preparing your online professional portfolio is just as important as the resume sent out when seeking an “in-office” position. Listing achievements and attaching samples of completed relevant work are great additions to a portfolio, in order to supply proof of your experience and qualifications.
