QOTD - what is your occupation?
I started out my post college work life as a CPA in public accounting. I moved to the private sector after a few years and eventually came to my current company as an accounting manager in the Finance department. I managed the AP, AR and billing departments for a few years, and then became very involved in the systems conversions through Y2K - and ended up moving into the technology department. I now manage the financial systems programming staff, but I keep up my CPA license and still work helping out a CPA friend with tax work on weekends when needed. Plus, I do the accounting for my DH's business - he owns and operates a pet store.
