What is the difference between an accounting clerk, accounting technician and staff accountant?
Question by Josephine H : What is the difference between in accounting clerk, accounting technician and staff accountant? I was so happy that I found a job in public accounting, however, they gave me an “Accounting Technician” title and I am pursuing a professional accounting designation. Will I ever get a chance to become a “Staff Accountant” instead?Is “Accounting Technician” a position below what a Business degree in Accounting graduate should be getting?Like I am in a three months probation, after three months do you think if i can pass the probation, then I can become a “Staff Accountant?Thank you.
