Hello, I have been trying to switch to the accounting field in Singapore but most companies ask for full set accounts exp even for an entry/ associate position. I was an external auditor for 5 years, I also completed 2 professional programs in cost management accounting and financial accounting along with a masters in accounting & finance. I have reconciled Trial balances, financial statements and performed journal entry testing, does this count as relevant exp?

Appreciate any advice or tips on how to tackle this.
