How much can you make with an associate's degree in Accounting? ?
Entry-level versus experienced. I hear there's a lot of positions that deal with payroll, billing, banking etc.
My goal is to make between $30k-$40k. Would this be realistic with an associate's degree? Right now I really don't have the time or money to invest in a bachelor's/master's degree, so I was debating if I wanted to go to school for accounting or take my career in another direction. I don't want to go the CPA route.

People always are looking for bookkeepers, and 30-40k in a metro area is reasonable.

No. Would not be realistic with a bachelor's for an entry level job except in a very expensive city

I have an Associate Degree in Accounting and I make six figures a year, but not in Accounting. I work in IT.

Its a fairly useless degree. Not much different than high school bookkeeping. Almost nobody is seeking people with an associate's degree.
So I don't think it would be easy to earn $30-40k with one.
When I went there were only 2 college accounting courses. I later took Accounting 301 at a 4 year school. The book was thick as heck and I dropped it after the first class.
There are clerical jobs but not $30-40k unless its NYC or something.
