    Hi everybody,

    I am new to this website and I apologise if someone else has already asked the same question as me..

    I am in my mid-thirties and I would like to work in the accounting industry and eventually become an accountant. I have got a decent educational background ( I have got a BSc in business administration and a Msc in Management) but unfortunately I havent got much experience apart from 6 months coding and registering invoices into a computer few years ago. At the moment i am studying towards ACCA qualification and I am working in the sales industry selling accounting products on the phone to some of the largest accounting firms in the worId - which might be potentially useful while writing about myself in the cover letter...

    I am aware I'll have to start from the bottom but I am struggling to understand which position I should apply for. Should I apply for bookkeeping and Accounts Assistant position only? I would really appreciate if you could help me making the right decision...

    Thanks

    I'm sure with the education (even without the practical experience) you've already got landing a good position should be no problem. Starting low isn't really much of an issue because you'd definately move up quickly if you're willing to show your potential, especially in a smaller firm.
