How did you get your start doing collections representative work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I do collections and make 45k. I do not have a degree, although I am working on it. I have been involved with finance (mainly billing) for past 11 years but after getting laid off I did not want the schedule of accounting so I found a collections job. I was lucky, but I got the job easily because of my previous billing and light collections experience.

Good luck
