I’m aware that this post isn’t quite the same as most of them on here. I can’t find many sites that offer the kind of advice I’m looking for.
I’m an English Literature graduate looking to get into accountancy. I had an interview recently for a scheme and didn’t get through the first round. I’m wondering if there is some way that I can demonstrate a commitment to accountancy as a career choice, because this seems to be the main reason I wasn’t considered. The only courses I can find are at least 2 years of study, at an undergraduate level, which doesn’t particularly appeal to me, not least because of the financial sacrifices I’d have to make on top of my existing debt. Is there another way to demonstrate a commitment to the career that isn’t as costly and time consuming (bearing in mind you don’t have to have an accountancy qualification to be accepted on to these schemes).
Thanks for looking.
