I apply for almost anything i think i could do. I cant keep most jobs for long. In 2 years ive had 2 bookkeeping interviews and neither went very well. It will likely become harder to get these interviews because more time has passed since i graduated

I worked at walmart as a stocker for 3 months and always had a sore back
I worked at Mcdonalds as a crew member for 3 weeks and couldnt keep up
I worked at kfc for 3 months as a cook and liked it but was only getting 24 hours a week. I cant get rehired because now i always fail the questionaire
I worked at cvs as a shift supervisor and didnt learn anything. I quit after 3 months because i was likely on the way out and didnt want to get fired
I worked as a test scorer and found it to be too boring. This job is hard to qualify for because you usually need 6 college credits in the subject the hs/ms test is in.
I worked various telemarketing jobs and cant sell well. Only one company had a deal i could sell and that position was a week out of the year.
I was offered a job in a safe counting money but failed the background test unfortunately. That job seemed promising.
I had an interview with ge but had no idea how how to answer the questions they emailed me so i could prepare for the interview. Researching was no help so i didnt go.
I was hired as a life insurance agent but quit the job after 3 days of unpaid training to take a job in a warehouse that turned out to be to

Best Answer:

john: Try a temp agency like Accountants ON-Call, maybe they can place you, but if you get dumped from any assignments they'll drop you and won't call you anymore, sounds like you can;t hold a good job for whatever reasons.

Other answer:

john:
You have an accounting degree and a decent, though not really high, GPA. Evidently you did nto make a serious effort on interviewing with CPA firms when you graduated. It's never too late, Take the CPA exam. Passing the exam will get you some good opportunities at good accounting positions with good pay. This may require some study, and you have to make sure you meet your state's qualifications. You don't have to take the exam under your state's requirements. For example, most states require 150 credit hours bu not all, so you may be able to take the exam under another state's rules. check the reference below. It would be a shame to waste yor degree by using it on clerical jobs with limited potential. You don't have to pass the entire exam at once. Many people pass it over a period of time. Even if it takes you 3-4 years while you are working at other jobs, it is worth the effort.
Alex:
My wife has an accounting degree. She found her first job through a temp agency as an assistant in a loans department in a bank. She then worked her way up through that ladder. So, you don't necessarily need an accounting job, you just need any job. But, what you are looking for is entry-level work (even if it is bookkeeping or accounting). And many if not most companies fill their entry level positions through staffing agencies. And I know there are staffing agencies that specialize in both clerical and accounting. So, be sure you are applying with staffing agencies. Just stay away from the ones who expect you to pay a fee.
Invictus:
Keep looking. Start by checking your resume to see if there's anything else you can improve there. If you land interviews, practice.
