Should I include this job on my resume?

I am applying for a tax specialist job. I am currently working as a personal banker (I am one year out of university). During university I worked an accounting job for 6 months, but decided not to pursue it. The accounting job would be good prior experience, but I would have difficulty explaining during an interview why I decided not to pursue it and may seem like I can't stick with a career (I hated acctg, but do enjoy taxes). Should I leave the acctg job off of my resume?

I would list it and tap dance around why you left. You could always say the current position was a better opportunity with career advancement

No. Don't leave it off your resume. You need to list all applicable experience to better your chances of getting the job. Most employers understand that sometimes people just want a change of jobs.

I would say list the position and state that the position helped you realize that after working for several months in accounting it helped to enhance your interest in taxes and working in accounting has given you applicable experience to venture into this field.
