Application Question

Finance and Accounting


I am an Exam qualified Accountant with the ACCA, i. e ACCA Affillate, which i obtained in August 2014. However i do not have any work experiance, since January 2015 i am doing an internship in a finance and accounting position to try and gain experiance.

I had applied for a graduate scheme to two of the big four accounting firms, but i could not even get past the application stage. I am wondering if this is because i an already a Qualifed Accountnat? Since they do not give feed back at this stage i am unable to establish why i am being turned away? Has anyone been in the same situation or can you advice me on what route to take to get in to these firms?
