How to answer question about my experience in sales ledger if I don`t have such?

I have Accounting degree but have never worked in finance. I have no practical experience at all with sales and purchase ledgers. I want to apply for accounts assistant role but one of the unessential criteria is experience in ledgers.
How do I go with this?

    Presumably you can talk about what you have studied in relations to sales and purchase ledgers, working capital management (though they may not want anyone with that level of knowledge so play it by ear), sales ledger reconciliation (again, may not be what they want), managing ‘collection days’, credit control debt recovery and the like. From my experience in sales ledger work, a knowledge of the systems underpinning the sales process is useful, from order placement to order confirmation, despatch to confirmation of receipt. Then it would probably help to have some idea of what you can and can’t do to recover overdue accounts. I am not sure of the extent to which such areas will have been covered in an accounting degree course but I’d imagine they were at least touched on.
