    Hello All,

    I am looking for my first job in accounting, I have 2 years office experience as a basic office junior , I have been applying for accountancy jobs but am not even getting interviews... I am studying towards ACCA ( done 6 months ) but dont have a degree just A-Levels

    Has anyone else been in this position? What did they do and where did they look ?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    Perhaps apply to small firms? Having started your ACCA may make you more attractive to them (because they have fewer exams to pay for). I wouldn't necessarily worry about the lack of degree, but be warned, there is a lot of competition out there with over 40,000 unemployed graduates from this year alone.
