  • Working under pressure: Working as a qualified Accountant means that you will be extremely busy most of the time and be working on dozens of financial cases each month. It can get quite stressful to deal with multiple clients at the same time, particularly during peak times in the year. You should, therefore, give some real-world examples on your CV of instances where you have worked under pressure, in a fast-paced working environment or have dealt with multiple tasks or projects at the same time with a successful outcome.

Good Luck!
