Which Optional Units Makes Me More Employable

HI all

This week - after waiting 7 weeks for the result of the CBP of Professional Ethics - I found out I passed it and therefore Level 3 is complete!

I am now wondering which of the Level 4 optional units I should take. I'm trying to think this from an employer's viewpoint and not by the cost, difficulty to pass or the duration of the courses. I've seen lots of credit control jobs advertised which state previous credit control experience required. Does taking that option replace / reduce the need for previous experience? Likewise can I have other's thoughts on the other options and where they will benefit me most.

I would like to present my studies as the most relevant to the widest range of employers.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi flyhigh,

    I cant speak for employers or other people, but for me personally I chose both tax modules as I work in an accountancy practice and deal with tax everyday. If you want to go into practice then I would suggest maybe the tax modules as you will use these in day to day life.

    It all depends on what area of accounting you want to get into.

    Good luck with your choice!

    Nope (other than your bank balance) - I did 3.
