Bookkeeping is a rewarding career path and the reasons to study a bookkeeping course go further than just having a head for numbers and killer organizational skills. The field is constantly growing, isn’t narrow—nor is it boring (let’s bust that stereotype right now!). The noble bookkeeper does everything from maintaining financial records, problem solving to taking on the role of trusted financial advisor. And it can be lucrative!
Here are 6 more AMAZING reasons to study Bookkeeping:
1.Every Business needs a Bookkeeper
From big industry leaders in finance and economics to the local grocery store down the road, every business needs someone to look after their books. Bookkeepers are wanted everywhere and anywhere- the list is simply endless! And as a result of this growing demand, there are great job prospects. Equipped with a quality Bookkeeping qualification, you can expect to find employment quickly and easily.
2. Enjoy Flexibility
Need flexible hours? Depending on the organization, Bookkeepers can choose to work part-time or full time. This is especially advantageous if you have a family to consider or are looking to supplement your partner’s income. Furthermore, if you love the sound of working in your pajamas with a cup tea in hand (uhm…bliss!), there are options to work freelance or work from home at some companies.
3. No Multitasking
Does the thought of multitasking make your head spin? We get it. Fortunately, part of your job description will be to prioritize certain tasks over others and to avoid multi-tasking altogether.

5.Tailor your Career to your Personality
Variety is the spice of life in Bookkeeping! Tailor your career to fit your personality and stage of life. If you love getting out of the office, choose a job that allows you to move around and work in different settings, or conversely choose a job without travel. Enjoy people? You could work in a bookkeeping job where you interact with loads of clients. On the other hand, if you lean more to the shier side, there are plenty of jobs that don’t require much socializing.
