I am trying to get on as a Jr.Accountant with my company, but I literally don't know much along the lines of accounting terms because I have yet to take accounting in school. The reason I'm applying for the job is for 1. to get out of the position I'm in now (I'm an Accounts Payable Coordinator) and 2. I like the department and the people in it and 3. it would be a huge step up. Basically what I need is the basics - I know they're going to throw some word problems my way and I need to know debit, credit, revenue and a situation with "What do you do when you're going to invoice someone" - Any advice to help me through the interview? Thank you!

wow, that first guy was a bit rough...but he isn't that far from the truth. Look, it takes quite a bit of knowledge, not just terms to "get by." With that said, if the company has faith in you to learn on the job, then well, more power to you... More

My advice: forget it. You are trying to apply for a position that you have no skills in. What is that about? You want that kind of job? Then get the skills it requires by taking some courses. That's a no-brainer!

more than can be done on this forum.. Rotsaruck, though, I think you're making a good move. If nothing else, tell them, "Hey, I don't know, but you know me, you've seen my work, and you know that I can and that I am anxious to learn. Just give me a chance."
