    Is there a better way to express this?

    Hey,

    I am trying to express that I am seeking an accounting-related position including tax and audit areas in an interview. I do not think it is appropriate to say so. Please give me some ideas to express it in a proper way.

    Thanks

    If you are already in an interview, you should know what sort of job you are being considered for.

    Do you have experience in tax and/or audit?
    Did you do particularly well in tax and/or audit classes?
    Are they simply areas of accounting you find more interesting?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    No I have not been in a interview yet. And I have both tax and audit internship experiences. So I am looking for those positions. Just have no idea how to express it in a more proper way. It would be my first interview experience.Thanks!

    I​t depends on the job you apply for.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Is there a better way to express this?

    It also depends on whether you are going to consider the job if it doesn't provide a significant amount of taxation and auditing work. I do think it's appropriate to say that in an interview (not that you won't take the job, but what you are looking for.) If you are not going to take the job under other conditions, you should not let the company think you will.
    If you intend to take any accounting job but would simply prefer the tax/auditing job, it might be best to state that as your interest, but not give the impression that a different job would be a deal-breaker.
