    Without an education, it would be very difficult to get started, however, your best bet to get in is to apply for some clerk level jobs, payables clerk, billing clerk, etc. In addition, if Accounting is something you want to pursue, then start a formal education process, as it will be very difficult to progress in accounting without it.

    Ditto what Steve says.

    Usually the minimum to break into the field is an associate's degree. My other strong advice would be to get a very basic entry level job at a mid-size or large company that has several departments. So, you could perhaps start in a clerical position, or shipping & receiving position. After several months in that entry level position apply for accounting positions within that company.

    [That's how I got into accounting; I had little education to start, just started as a file clerk.]
