"I found AccountingCoach when I was preparing to apply for positions in the accounting field after an absence of 15 years. I previously worked for 6+ years as an accounts receivable clerk and general accounting assistant, but I felt that my skills were rusty and wished to refresh my memory on the basic principles of accounting. This was exactly what I needed. I found that I really had not forgotten as much as I feared I had. With regained confidence, I was able to secure a position as an accounting assistant to an accounting manager for a small company." - Becky W.
