Bookkeeping, accounting and auditing clerks typically work full-time hours. If you work for a restaurant, hotel or store, expect lengthier hours in the office during holidays and the vacation season. But the strains associated with the job are light. “It’s a good life. It’s not real demanding,” Bybee explains of the day-to-day routine. However, with the lighter burden comes lighter pay. For a more lucrative salary, consider getting an accounting degree or becoming a certified public accountant.
