Job Title: Business Manager
Type of Company: I work for a non-profit organization for people with disabilities.
Previous Experience: I have worked as a payroll administrator, an accounts receivable administrator and in personnel.
Job Tasks: My job is to calculate what pay a person gets for the work he's done. I have to figure out how much they get paid for certain jobs. Joe worked 48 hours, for example. He gets $10 an hour for doing X and $15 an hour for doing Y. If he did 25 hours of one and 23 hours of the other, and a part of that time was overtime, how much do we pay him?. Obviously, if I pay him at the $10 rate, he gets less than if I credit him for the other higher rate. These are the kinds of problems I face. I also have to figure out bills and monies sent in for those bills. If I miss a deadline for getting the bills out to clients, I may not have enough money coming in to support payroll or to pay taxes, insurance or utility bills.
Human resources is also a big part of my job. If I can get answers to the 5 W's -- who, what , where, when and why -- my job is easier.
Best and Worst Parts of the Job: The best part of my job is working with numbers. The worst part is not being guaranteed to get out in time to get to all events that my child is involved in.
1. Make sure that you continue your education after high school. I am not getting paid as much as someone with a degree. I am in the same position, but that little piece of paper is important.
2. Be sure to take courses that will help you. If you want to go into business, math is so important.
3. Choose a career that interests you. You can always change, but you will need to start all over if you don't like it.
