How does one go about becoming a bookkeeper? Is a university degree necessary or is an associate degree or certification in finance or related field enough to land you a bookkeeping job?

I suppose that an associate degree in Finance, Accounting or related fields enhances your eligibility to land bookkeeping jobs. I heard that there are also certification programs on bookkeeping offered in universities.

I had a friend who took some classes as a part of the continuing education department at her local community college. She received a certificate at the end of the program. It was also a short program - less than a year I believe.

Did you friend have any prior accounting knowledge? Bookkeeping entails a lot. Sometimes you even have to do the accounts payable, accounts receivable, and the billing.
