Hey, I've applied to the big firms like Grant Thornton, KMPG, Mazars and a few local independent firms.. personally I find you get a better chance with the small firms as they actually invite you for an interview and deal face to face rather than judging you by some online assessment but that's just me, by all means do try apply to them all you just never know.

Got an Interview lined up next week with a local firm for apprenticeship.

results I got C in accounting (so close to a B), B in business and a B in criminology.
hey,
im in the process of finding and applying to different apprenticeships in accounting for 2024, however I dont have any experience in this industry, and so I am not entirely sure what I should be writing on my applications, or even if its worth applying as they'll just disregard me because of my lack of experience?

depends on who you're applying with.. some firms aren't bothered by lack of experience if applying to roles like 'Trainee Accountant' etc.. some firms may be specific and require some sort of background knowledge of accounting but that's just going off my experience of applying so far others have more luck depending on area and all those factors.

One thing you can do is those free open uni courses on accounting on book-keeping just to write something on your CV which is what I did.

yess, still waiting for a shortlist.
But in general I say be confident and outgoing and work effectively in a team such as being a time keeper or leader in the group task but not bein tooo domineering
