ACCOUNTING/BUDGET FORCASTING

Philippines - Last active: 09/30/2011 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 5

As a Professional Book keeper and Budget Analyst, I am well aware that in this fast-changing world of computer technology, it is essential to keep up with the latest innovations. I have done this through my 30 years of employment with the YGOFC, a transportation business in the Philippines, in which I was able to gain immeasurable knowledge and skills in the fields of Accounting, Statistics, Electronic Data Processing, Excel Spreadsheet and MS-Word, beyond my degree program and independent reading. At present, I'm working as a Bookkeeper and Budget Analyst for MRF Accounting Firm. However, I am looking for more opportunities for advancement, and I'm interested in a position which involves Web Research and Data Entry, Bookkeeping, Accounting, Statistics and Budget Forecasting. For more details about my qualification, please take the time to review my work experiences: In January, 1976, I started as a (working student) canteen tender in YGOFC bus terminal where I experienced getting along with people from all walks of life. I was able to learn and adjust myself to practice the "customer service satisfaction" policy of the company. In October, 1977, I was promoted as a canteen bookkeeper wherein I experienced the actual hands-on of setting-up book of accounts and prepared financial reports. I learned and familiarized myself in preparing Income Statement reports, Bank Reconciliations, Petty Cash Reconciliations and other reports requested by the management. However, my services ended in October, 1983 when I attempted to take the CPA Board Exam, which unfortunately did not push through due to some personal reasons. In January, 1984, YGOFC, my previous employer, called back and hired me as an Accountant in their newly open branch in Mindanao Island. Here, I experienced data entry in a program generated system, analyzing and classifying daily business transactions and generating Monthly Income Statements and Balance Sheets. In addition to that, I also did Preparation of Petty Cash Reconciliation, Bank Reconciliation and Comparative (Actual against Budget) Revenue and Expense Reports. In March, 1990, I was promoted as a Budget Officer for our branch office. With that, I accepted another challenge in creating Budget Forecast and Revenue Projections. As a Budget Officer, I was able to increase my knowledge in Accounting and Statistics and developed my skills in Excel spreadsheet. Creating Budget forecasts and Revenue Projections made a lot of history and present analysis of accounts including the future perception of the business. With this kind of job, I was able to increase my proficiency in Excel, familiarize myself with the use of Excel Functions and formulas. And for almost two years of working with Excel spreadsheet, I was able to manipulate Excel Functions and formula that makes me proficient in this application. In July, 1995, I was transferred to our Central Office and worked as an Electronic Data Processing Officer. I considered this as the biggest challenge in my profession since I was used to deal with numbers and had no background in internet. But it didn't stop me from exploring the internet world. I attended seminars and was trained to control all backup data coming from different branches, sending and receiving emails (through Eudora mailbox and Yahoo Mail). Other duties includes, web research and data collection of suppliers for our Material Control Department. This enhanced my ability to explore the internet world, copy/paste data from web to Excel and re-typing PDF files to Excel. In addition, I was able to familiarize myself with MS-Word through sending business letters to suppliers and re-typing scanned images to MS-Word which has improved my typing speed to 30 WPM. In September, 2000, I was promoted to the position of Central Office Senior Accountant. It has dissimilar functions from a Branch Accountant since we did not prepare Income Statement or Balance Sheet. Its main function was to take charge of all financial activities of all Branches and Support Groups like Transfer of Funds to Branches, Receiving Cash Remittances from branches (through Banks), payment of Branches Accounts Payable, preparing Revolving Fund Reconciliation, Bank Reconciliation, preparation of Inter-Branch charges, General Service Group charges and Compilation of Branches Revenue and Expense Reports. Preparation of those financial reports has broadened my skill in Excel since it has to be done in an Excel spreadsheet format, wherein Excel functions and formulas are on top. In November, 2004, I was then promoted to the position of Finance Manager of a newly opened branch in Dipolog City, Philippines. As a Finance Manager, I was able to apply my proficiency in Accounting, Statistics, Excel and MS-Word that I've gained from my previous experiences. With the great foundation that I had gained from those experiences, managing a Finance Department was easy in terms of work load, but the most challenging part of being a Manager was the command and responsibility. My previous experiences as a supervisor helped me build up a good control over my subordinates, learned how to balance their work loads and check the quality and quantity of their works. Knowing about their values also played an important role, but rigid monitoring was the best. At age fifty, I decided to retire and practice in an Accounting Firm with my CPA partners.
