Account Management Jobs – Remote, Part-Time & Freelance

Welcome to the Account Management remote, part-time, freelance, and flexible jobs page! Account Management positions involve the planning, coordination and directing of various programs and plans to meet organizational objectives. Account Managers work closely with customers to help them attain their goals while maintaining budgetary guidelines. Account Managers often provide support with difficult or challenging processes and applications to aid customers with their projects. Depending on their level of experience, Account Managers may be asked to supervise other employees or project assistants. Account Managers may also be referred to as Project Manager, Account Executive, Program Assistant, Marketing Manager, Account Representative or Sales Representative. As a general rule of thumb, Account Management jobs require a 4 year college degree and 1-3 years work experience. Telecommuting jobs are available in both full and part-time roles.

Most staff accountant positions require at least a bachelor’s degree in accounting or a related field. Some employers prefer to hire applicants who have a master’s degree, either in accounting or in business administration with a concentration in accounting. A few universities and colleges offer specialized programs, such as a bachelor’s degree in internal auditing. In some cases, those with associate’s degrees, as well as bookkeepers and accounting clerks who meet the education and experience requirements set by their employers, get junior accounting positions and advance to accountant positions by showing their accounting skills on the job. Many colleges help students gain practical experience through summer or part-time internships with public accounting or business firms.

Advancements for Staff Accountants

Some top executives and financial managers have a background in accounting, internal auditing, or finance.

Entry-level public staff accountants can advance to senior positions with more responsibility. Those who excel may become supervisors, managers, or partners; open their own public accounting firm; or transfer to executive positions in management accounting or internal auditing in private firms.

Management accountants often start as cost accountants, junior internal auditors, or trainees for other staff accounting positions. As they rise through the organization, they may advance to accounting manager, chief cost accountant, budget director, or manager of internal auditing. Some become controllers, treasurers, financial vice presidents, chief financial officers, or corporation presidents.

Public accountants, management accountants, and internal auditors can move from one aspect of accounting and auditing to another. Public accountants often move into management accounting or internal auditing. Management accountants may become internal auditors, and internal auditors may become management accountants. However, it is less common for management accountants or internal auditors to move into public accounting.

Important Qualities

Analytical skills. Accountants and auditors must be able to identify issues in documentation and suggest solutions. For example, public accountants use analytical skills in their work to minimize tax liability, and internal auditors use these skills to detect fraudulent use of funds.

Communication skills. Accountants and auditors must be able to listen carefully to facts and concerns from clients, managers, and others. They must also be able to discuss the results of their work in both meetings and written reports.

Detail oriented. Accountants and auditors must pay attention to detail when compiling and examining documentation.

Math skills. Accountants and auditors must be able to analyze, compare, and interpret facts and figures, although complex math skills are not necessary.

Organizational skills. Strong organizational skills are important for accountants and auditors, who often work with a range of financial documents for a variety of clients.
