How do i apply for a job that I have no experience for?
I have a degree in Business and IT. However I have seen a job advertised for a Accounts Assistant and would like to go in this direction. I haven't got any accounting experience whatsoever! However this job says they will train you. I need to write a personal statement but don't really know what I should include as I have no accounting experience. I know I can write about "transferrable skills" but can someone help me out with the layout? The statement is 300 words maximum.
