After completing an Associate of Applied Science in Accounting, you’ll be ready for entry level positions as a bookkeeper, payroll clerk, billing clerk, cost clerk, audit support specialist or tax preparer. You’ll also be qualified for entry-level positions as a junior accountant, accounting technician, fiscal technician and internal auditor.
