I currently have an AP role and even though I have accounting in my title, my job has nothing at all to do with “real” accounting. I don’t do anything with the chart of accounts, bonds, depreciation, leases, nothing at all that I am trying to learn in FAR. I work for a large company and basically I answer questions all day that have to do with our company’s systems and people not being able to follow directions. I’m struggling hard with FAR right now. Made it all the way through Roger’s lectures and book but am only getting around 50% right now on the mcq’s and task based simulations. So for any of you that do or did have staff roles, do actually use this stuff on a daily basis? I feel like at our company, it’s pretty large, so people only do little slivers of accounting and FAR has a ton of topics so even if I do wait around for something to open up I’m not sure how much I’ll get exposed to. I thought about trying to make the switch to public even if it’s just bookkeeping somewhere small and local. For those of you in public do you actually get to do a lot or do you still focus on particular areas? It feels like I’m currently wasting 40 hours a week that I could be studying or reinforcing what I’m learning if I either get another job or quit until I’m done. I feel like I learn by doing, I want to see this stuff in action instead of just trying to memorize facts and formulas.
