What this job is about
OK, so you might not ever use calculus again after school. But some of those math skills you've racked up in the past decade can come in handy when it comes to bookkeeping. As a bookkeeper, your job is to make sure a company's accounting is in order. It usually means paying bills, tracking expenses and organizing accounts receivable, so the job requires organizational and math skills, along with solid tech skills – most bookkeeping functions are done via software. If you love math and get excited at the sight of a blank ledger, it might be a career option worth checking out – after you're done your calculus homework, of course.
