You can have no idea about the software package they use in the company. Accounting packages differ a lot, and even if you do work with one of them, you will struggle with a different one. Because of that we suggest you to emphasize that you have great computer intelligence, and will easily learn to work with any software of their choice.
Stick to the same strategy whether you have any experience or not. Try to convince them that you will manage to work with the software of their choice.
I have experience with NetSuite and Zoho. I worked with both applications for about a year, including creating year end financial statements and balance sheets. However, I believe that I am able to learn to work with any software quickly, as I learned to work with both of the programs in a few days time.
I worked only with QuickBooks. I like it for its speed, accuracy and simple user interface. However, if there is a need to work with any other program, I am willing to work overtime to learn it quickly.
I have not worked with any accounting software so far. All my experience is with my own mind, hand, pen, and calculator. However, I can work pretty well with all common Office programs, so I believe it would be easy for me to learn to work with accounting software. I am young and very skilled with computers in general.
