Dear friends,
I am a B.Sc graduate working as a Data Entry Operator in Semi Govt Industry,
In my job i am dealing with accounts section and i have experience more than 5 yrs in accounts, now i want to go to Dubai.
Here my Question is, are recruiters consider me as accountant if I apply for the Accountant job?
Will i apply for Data Entry Operator/ Computer Operator job?
I have much knowledge in MS-Exel.
If I want to apply for the Accountant job, what courses are to be learned?
Please help
Thanks in Advance.

Dear Rahul,
For getting accountant job you must have degree or certificate in accounting like B.Com or CAT or CIMA. MS Excel is not the only qualification needed for an accountant job. With data entry experience you can easily get data entry job but accountant job is rather difficult for you unless you have some qualification in accounts

There is no hard and fast rule that only B.Com graduates can do accounting job.
Even 10th class candidates having trained in chartered accountants office are
doing better. Only thing you should have knowledge in accounting. If it is a big
company or corporate office, definitely they will ask relevant qualification, but
small companies look for experienced people who can give good results.
However, you must acquire knowledge in Tally software as well as some
Accounts side training programmes which some open universities are offering.
You can try your job as accountant only instead of data entry operator where
the growth is less.
