Got a Third trying to find accounting job no exp. do i start ACCA or not? any hope? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I did business and accounting at university and unfortunately got a third due to lots of different personal circumstances extremely close to a 2:2.

    I wanted to know if i should start or complete the ACCA before applying for accounting jobs because i can’t get on any graduate schemes. I’ve found that the majority of jobs require experience and may be the reason i don’t get shortlisted or past the interview stage.

    Do you think there would be employers out there willing to hire me if I’ve started or completed the ACCA even though i don’t have experience of working in a similar or the same type of position?

    Is there anyway i could get experience using software like sage as this is one of the requirements?
