first, I would like to thank you for answering my question. I went to Robert Half account temp office in Dallas and Irving I met with a couple of recruiters and he told me the vast majority It's hard for me to do temp accounting work as you suggested because I don't have any experience at all. that`s mainly the reason why I posted my question here in the forum. Would you please suggest a couple of temp agencies that hopefully give me a chance, please? and I will update you with the feedback. Thanks again.

What most of the organizations look for in the fresher is the zest to learn and how cool you're with your basics when it comes to accounting. Work on getting your basic accounting knowledge right, show high energy while in an interview, and of course, willingness to learn. You will land yourself something awesome! All the best with your career!

I looked at this thread. Working on basics , have a bachelors in accounting but the problem is resume is not even shortlisted. No one is calling for interviews even before pandemic. Daily I apply to 2-3 jobs on entry level accounts finance. No luck!

There's initial friction when it comes to landing your first job. It is really annoying and puts one on self-doubt. What I suggest is work on your references (friends and family) to land an initial job. Upskill yourself with certificates and courses. All the best!
