    What does my work experience translate to in the real world? Srs

    So I was contracted right out of high-school to an engineering firm for 5 years in the records management department doing clerical work,
    and then I went to work for a small business doing bookkeeping, purchasing, AR/AP, managing accounts, b2b sales etc for the last 5 years

    Not really sure what would be the path of least resistance for me to transition into something else after this. I've never been without a job long enough to think about it. But I want to make sure I'm doing everything I can as far as education required as well to transition to the next phase.

    What does my work experience translate to that I could easily get into next?

    Sales and some type of data entry/clerk work.

    I would say something accounting/financial driven since it sounds like you've developed a background of experience there, but most places would need to see a degree as well to go beyond a data entry position

    Thank you guys for the ideas. Do you guys think I could land a position in the procurement department without formal education?

    That depends. The person(s) doing the hiring will normally hire the best qualified candidate. Someone else may have the education, but if you have the experience you should use that to your advantage during the interview/application. Place emphasis on your experience/accomplishments, not your education.
