Position Desired

General office work, with a focus on accounting. I will be pursuing my accounting degree, and am especially interested in work that will help further that goal.

Personal History

I am a Colorado native, who spent 1978-1986 living in Tokyo, Japan. I maintained my Japanese permanent resident status until 1996. I am fluent in non-technical conversational Japanese, both written and spoken.

I am reasonably well-versed in Microsoft's operating system and office suite products, including Japanese extensions to Windows 2000 / XP. I type approximately 55WPM. I am familiar with using basic Internet software (MSIE and Netscape Navigator)

I am familiar with the basic principles of General Accounting and bookkeeping. It is my eventual career goal to achieve a CPA.
