When interviewing for an entry-level accountant job, chances are there won’t be a lot of questions about your workplace experience. After all, you’re just out of school! However, you should be prepared to answer some specific technical questions, including:

  • What accounting applications are you most familiar with? Be prepared to discuss your Everest training as well as any other applications you may have learned on your own.
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of these systems? Accounting applications are designed to deal with specific problems and situations. Be able to explain the pros and cons of the systems on which you were trained.
  • Give us some examples of accounting reports you’ve prepared. Bring sample reports to your interview and be prepared to discuss how you created them.
  • What’s the biggest challenge facing accountants today? What they probably want to hear is, “Accountants need to be effective consultants and managers, not just number-crunchers. Employers don’t want just facts and figure. They want solutions.”
