I recently moved to Chicago from Minneapolis, MN. I graduated from Metropolitan State University in August 2018 with major in Accounting.
I worked as an Accounts Payable specialist in a small law firm for 5 years, prior to that I’ve volunteered for two tax season in a non-profit organization filing individual tax returns for people with low-income.
I think both are good with their own features, but I personally prefer Quickbooks just because I use it a lot more than Xero.
For me, favorite part about accounting is problem solving.
I always loved working with numbers and when I took my first accounting class, I knew right away it is something I want to pursue. It made sense to me right away and was easy to understand.
