Clerical Jobs

Clerical Job Overview

Clerical Workers, also known as receptionists and front desk workers, work for accountants who need assistance with office tasks. They perform a number of duties that keep the office running smoothly and ensure that the accountants can focus more of their time on accounting. Clerical Workers greet clients entering the facility and make them feel more comfortable until their appointment. They also file paperwork and documents, check and respond to emails, answer phone calls and perform other administrative tasks. They often serve as the public face of the company. Some accountants also ask Clerical Workers to do some research for them and double check documents before sending the paperwork to clients.

Clerical Job Education Requirements

The minimum amount of education required for clerical jobs is a high school diploma or its equivalent. A strong background in math and a familiarity with accounting topics may be other requirements. Clerical Workers typically go through some on-the-job training, which can take place over the course of a few days or several weeks. They work with an established member of the office to learn the filing system, how to use software associated with the job and to learn more about how the office operates.

Clerical Job Market

Jobs for receptionists and other Clerical Workers will grow at a similar rate as the national average rate of growth. This equates to 14 percent, which means that the field will add nearly 14,000 jobs by 2022. This figure refers to all types of receptionists and clerical positions and not just those working for accountants. As some accountants only work during the busy tax season and on a part-time basis throughout the rest of the year, Clerical Workers may find that they only receive limited hours from an employer.

Clerical Job Salary Information

The median annual salary for a receptionist working in the United States is $30,000, but the median wage for the bottom 10 percent is $20,000. The median wage for the top 10 percent is $40,000 a year. The skills that Clerical Workers need may also help those workers seek employment in Accounting Clerk jobs and Accounts Payable Associate jobs.
