    There is a job opening under accountant profile.

    1) There is a job opening under accountant profile.

    2) There is a job opening in accountant profile.

    Which is correct "under" or "in"? Are my sentences correct otherwise?

    Re: There is a job opening under accountant profile.

    What is an "accountant profile"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sorry, I don't know what is the correct way of saying this. But haven't you hear people say "I am looking for a job in a particular profile"? Please tell me the correct way.

    No – never. I'd say

    I'm looking for a job as an accountant.
    I'm looking for an accountancy job.
    I'm an accountant looking for a job.
    I'm looking for a job in the field of accountancy.

    Re: There is a job opening under accountant profile.

    You could say I'm looking for a job in the Accounting department or, even more simply, I'm looking for a job in accounting. Note that "Accounting" is capitalized as a proper noun when it's the name of the department.
