Why do people who never took a class in accounting get jobs in accounting?
That sucks when people get jobs working in accounting departments and have never taken a single class in accounting. I asked some of them how did they get hired, they told me they knew someone. They get trained on the software and end up with a decent paying job. While those of us who studied hours getting an accounting degree don't get hired.

It probably isn't 100% one way. Sadly, in many jobs and things in life - knowing the right person can work wonders. So I suggest you also do some networking and try to get to know people who know people at places you want to work. Sadly, I think that's how most jobs are gotten - from networking.
