You can have no idea which 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 not only mention the programs you work with–you should also put emphasis on your high computer intelligence, saying that you will learn to work with any software.
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 will learn to work with any software quickly, as I learned to work with both of these 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 software, I am willing to stay here after regular working hours and learn.
I have not worked with any accounting software. I always preferred my own mind, and the calculator. But I can work with all common MS Office programs, and my computer intelligence is good. Therefore I think I wouldn’t struggle to learn to work with the software of your choice.
