I hold a B.A. in the liberal arts and have no job experience in finance. I do however, spend a lot of time trading and researching with my equities and forex accounts. What entry-level finance jobs are out there for college graduates with a background outside of finance and accounting?
When searching for a new job, how do you accurately list your position when your employer has given you the wrong title? For example: If your employer has given you the title of Accounts Payable Clerk, and you do the job of a CFO. What do you put on your resume?
Recruiters and hiring managers look directly at your past position titles to determine if you are qualified for a job, without regard to seeing your description.
For resume sake (not interviewing, because I know you can explain that situation in the interview) whats the best way to handle it?
I was so happy that I found a job in public accounting, however, they gave me an "Accounting Technician" title and I am pursuing a professional accounting designation. Will I ever get a chance to become a "Staff Accountant" instead?
Is "Accounting Technician" a position below what a Business degree in Accounting graduate should be getting?
Like I am in a three months probation, do you think after three months if i can pass the probation, then I can become a "Staff Accountant"?
I want to get into an accounting job but do not have experience. I have a bachelors of business finance and I will start on a masters of accounting program this year. I want to get some experience before I finish my masters program. What do I need to do to get started in the field?
I don't have any experience so I looked into clerk positions but on most of the ads they ask for 2-3 years of experience. I've also considered going back to school to major in computer science because it seems hard to break into finance.

Here is my situation, I am currently looking for a job that will help launch my career in the accounting field. I graduated last year with a Bachelor's in Finance and am planning on taking accounting certification classes under the UCLA extension program sometime next year. I figured this would be a good step in obtaining my CPA license.
Right now, I am unemployed but I am currently looking for an accounting clerk position. There have been employers who were interested enough in my resume to contact me for an interview, so...so far so good.
But now I'm nervous. I don't have an extensive amount of experience in the accounting field. Most of my jobs have been as a receptionist or administrative assistant, In fact, I only have 6 months experience in the accounting field, and that was limited at best. I worked for a start up company with 3 employees as an executive assistant/bookkeeper. I was still learning the bookkeeper end of the job until I was let go. Now I worry that I lack even the most basic knowledge to perform an accounting clerk position.
I know most people are nervous when it comes to starting a new job/career. When the time comes and when I find the right job, I would like to step into the new role with confidence instead of nervousness and anxiety. So how do I deal with this?
