Accounting & Payroll Training Opens Doors to These Bonus Business Roles

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

You want a new career path that will give you options down the road. That’s because you’re smart enough to be worried about being stuck in the same role five or ten years from now.

There are many good reasons to eventually need a change. What if you lose interest, the economy shifts, or you want to learn new skills?

You want to future-proof your career.

One of the best ways to do that is by training in accounting and payroll. It’s an easy entry point into the world of corporate finances, but it’s also a proven stepping stone into other areas of business.

Here are three of the exciting directions you can take your career when you start in accounting and payroll:

Human Resources

A comprehensive accounting and payroll program will cover the essentials of this area, including compensation, training and development, and performance appraisal. You’ll get the foundational knowledge you need to one day help companies attract and retain the best talent.


Accounting and payroll professionals work well with numbers, have business writing skills, and understand finances. That’s a solid foundation to eventually move into marketing, a field in which communication and budgeting can help companies find new customers and clients.


The long-term success of a small business depends upon strong financial management skills. When you’re ready to bring your own business idea to life, you’ll have a head start with your knowledge of bookkeeping, income tax, and payroll practices.
