Industry to practice

I have worked in Industry for the past 4 years and will be finishing my AAT next June.

I really want to work in a practice once I have finished where I can progress to being chartered.

I am in the process of writing to a few practices in my area to see if they could offer me a job next June, I know industry it is frowned upon by practice accountants, does anyone have any ideas of points I could put in my letter to convince them that I can do the job? Or is this going to be a complete lost cause?

    We are in the same boat:001_smile:....have been in contact with one recently, the principal was very interested in my CV but has decided to postpone new employment until better times (thank you recession......:ohmy:), so fingers crossed....have also sent CVs to others but negative responses so far.......:thumbdown: let's stay positive, maybe when we are fully qualified, will be easier.......:confused1:
    I have sent you a private message by the way a couple of weeks ago....
