I’m looking to switch careers. I’d be venturing into the accounting field without prior work experience or much related coursework (take that to mean 2 undergraduate courses). Currently, my plans are to find an entry-level job close to the school I want to enroll in for my license. While I’m interested in audit, I’d like to work somewhere that also does say taxation and managerial accounting. I need a company that provides a good depth and breadth of service areas. My questions for you are:

What type and size of company am I looking for? Local/regional public account firm, mid/large-sized company with an accounting department?

What job title terms should I look out for? Accounting assistant, clerk, bookkeeper?

Also, know I don’t care too much about the pay. I can live on little for the time being.
