– By Caren Mayers, Consultant at HW Search (Financial recruitment agency), author of website.


Dear job seeker,

Can you answer the following interview questions brilliantly?

– What was the toughest accounting task you ever solved?

– Describe a time when you had to explain a complex accounting issue to someone without an accounting background.

– What do you hate about this job?

– This job is repetitive. What would motivate you to do it well every day?

– Why should we hire you, and not someone else?

It is not easy, is it?

What is more, do you know how to make a good impression on your interviewers, and convince them to give you a job? Do you know how to deal with a tough personality test in your interview? And do you have any idea about the technical questions, and short case studies you will have to deal with?

School has not prepared you to succeed in an interview. But  you can succeed–if you are willing to study a little bit.

See the sample from my eBook below:

—–Start of the sample from Accountant Interview Guide—-

Q. 15.: Describe a time when you had to explain a complex accounting issue to someone without an accounting background. How did you help your audience to understand?

Hint: The interviewers want to hear that you know how to talk to people from other departments, that you have an ability to explain difficult things in a simple way,in a language of common people.

I suggest you to mention that you are always patient when explaining things to other people, that you try to use their language, and use pictures, charts and practical examples to make things easier for people who do not understand financial terminology.

Sample Answers:

When I started my last job in a small company, I asked the boss to provide invoices, budgets and financial statements. I found several opportunities to reduce tax expenses while studying the documents. Other people from the company had to modify certain transactions. But they had no knowledge of accounting or taxes. To present my idea as clearly as possible to them, I prepared charts and case studies. I used simple words, showing them how much money we could save on taxes, if they changed the way they invoiced the clients. I demonstrated everything on practical examples, using numbers and pictures. They finally understood it, and they followed the suggestions.

I have never been in such a situation, becasue I apply for my first job. If it happened, however, I would prepare a PowerPoint presentation with charts and illustrations, and I would try to explain the issue in a simple language.


Q. 6.:Why do you think you can be a good accountant?

Hint: Interviewers are able to recognize your strengths and weaknesses (or at least they should be able to do so), and tell if you can be a good accountant. That’s what they get paid for….

However, they may still ask you this question to see if you can criticize yourself, if you can assess your own skills, and if you know what it takes to do this job well. I suggest you to be honest and humble. You should focus on the following things in your answer:

  • Your abilities and experience
  • Your motivation, your enthusiasm for the role.
  • Something that makes you unique, something that makes you stand out from the other applicants.


Sample answers

I have studied accounting for five years. I was the best student in a class, always got great marks from principal subjects. During my studies I searched for practical case studies and solved them in my free time, trying to strengthen my practical knowledge of accounting. On the top of that, I really enjoy doing the job, and believe I can bring some value to your team.

I meet the requirements from the job description. What is more, this is the role I have always wanted to get. I believe that a good accountant can really make a difference for a company, helping them to improve ROI, following the most optimal accounting practices. That is why I applied for a job in your company, and I believe I will do this job really well.

Amanda Fribier - accountant, one of the customers from United StatesI had tried to get a job for six months. They always invited me for an interview, because I had the right qualification, but someone else got the job. Two weeks ago, however, I found your eBook and it opened my eyes. I saw the mistakes I had made in the past interviews. I avoided making the same mistakes while interviewing at Ernst & Young, and they offered me a full time job contract.

I purchased also other books to help me in my job search, but only the Accountant Interview Guide was job specific. And I have found there everything I needed. Sending greetings from Montreal.

Helen, accountant who got a job at Deloitte, after reading the interview guideI was looking for some advice prior to my accounting interview at Deloitte. I found your eBook and I decided to purchase it. It was definitely the right decision! Most questions I got in my first and second interview were analyzed and answered in your book. I had a lot of confidence, and progressed to the final round. Thank you Caren!

Dear Job Seeker,

I have been working at HW Search, a financial recruitment agency, for the past eight years. I interviewed more than one thousand applicants for entry level, intermediate and senior accounting and auditing positions over the years. Let me tell you something:

Interview for a position of an accountant is one of the toughest interviews. Tough behavioral and technical questions will test both your communication and accounting skills. What is more, you will compete with many other job seekers, since it is a very popular job field.

I have seen many people fail in the interviews. But …

  • They failed not because they lacked the qualification.
  • They failed not because they were stupid.
  • They failed not because they could not handle their job.

Most of them failed because they had no idea about how to sell their skills in an interview, what the interviewers wanted to hear from them, and how to stand out from the other applicants.

How could they succeed? They were fresh graduates, employees, young people … in all good means. But they were not good in the art of acing an interview. That wasn’t their field of expertise… Nobody told them what to do, what really mattered, what questions they should expect, and what answers they should choose. They failed.

Times have changed, however, for everyone. I started to coach people on how to succeed in their interviews, and I wrote an eBook that can help you to get this job.

Miranda Walkers small picture, customer who provided reference for the eBookMy friends told me I was too young to get a job of an Internal Auditor. But I did not let them discourage me. I did more than the other job applicants did, buying your eBook and hiring an interview coach. I felt really good in the interviews ever since, and got a job of an Internal Auditor in a local branch of an international automotive company. This is a great start for my career. Thank you Caren!
