OU Job Board to Offer Six Free Classes on Quickbooks in February and March

20 Feb 2009

Looking for an opportunity to improve your prospects in the workplace? The Orthodox Union Job Board is presenting a free series of six one-hour lessons on the topic, “The QuickBooks Experience: Advancing Your Chances in the Workplace.” QuickBooks is the most widely used accounting software. The series will be presented by Miriam Lefkovitz, CPA, Adjunct Professor of Accounting at Brooklyn College and Touro College.

The classes will take place on February 26, March 5, March 12, March 19, and March 26, all Thursdays, from 12:00 to 1:00pm and on Tuesday March 31 12:00 – 1:00 PM at OU Headquarters, 11 Broadway.

Michael Rosner, Director of the OU Job Board declared, “Knowing QuickBooks in today’s job market will give job-searchers an extra edge and put them at a higher salary level.” According to Mr. Rosner, a six-part series such as this would typically cost $2,000 at a computer school, but the OU Job Board, as a service to the community, is offering it free of charge.
