The best way to crack into the accountancy profession is let the employment bureau do the hard work for you.
There is some thing for you (getting a job in accountancy bureau) and there is some thing for them.
Only register with them for temp. contracts. That way not only will you get experience in Sales ledger but also in purchase ledger, general ledger, payroll and the choice is vast.
The only thing you MUST demonstrate you enthusiasm, passion and willing to be flexible for the job, when you attend your interview. Don't be placid. Show your eagerness, fire, "will do anything to get the job"......
There are plenty of accounting jobs out there.
I would recommend Robert Half International. I invite them to come and advise my students, every year, on how to get jobs in the market. The above advise is from them.
My student’s age vary from 18 to 54 and they all manage to get jobs in an accounting environment. It is surprising, isn't it!
You may have to compromise with your current pay to what you might get. But that’s for first few months. I am sure you sound like that you can demonstrate your maturity and experience of life and work. This will push your pay higher.
Initially expect pay of £5.52 to £6.10 per hour and rising to £8 to £10 depending on your experience.
Now is the right time to contact the employment bureaus, as the holiday season is rife.
