Bookkeeper Jobs in Oak Park, IL

Oversee the general ledger. Bookkeepers—also called bookkeeping clerks—are responsible for making the organization’s financial transactions, balancing company accounts, preparing bank deposits, and delivering accounting reports.

Because many bookkeeping functions are performed electronically, these employees must be proficient with computers. The profession requires a strong understanding of accounting software used to record and analyze financial data, such as QuickBooks or Sage.
