I've been out of school for 1.5 years now with an accounting degree. I bartended for a while, and now I'm working in retail management but I'd like to get a job that pertains to my degree. It seems that being out of school this long with no direct experience in the field makes it impossible to get a job. I'm having an especially difficult time writing a cover letter for an accounting job when I have no experience and have been out of school so long. Is anyone really good with this stuff that could give me some pointers or put me in the right direction? I keep trying to get it started, but I'm struggling bad and its taking me hours to get anywhere. The current job I have is basically eating my soul, and I need to get out ASAP.
