I understand your situation, but I feel your educational background will actually help you standout along with the knowledge of data skills.
In fact, Accounting analytics is a great area for compliance and fraud examination.
So, I will suggest you keep updating your profile with knowledge, refer www.coursera.com or www.udacity.com for theory and www.udacity.com; and Kaggle for practical resources.
Keep updating your resume with some practical work in data analysis or data science projects to showcase the experience on your resume.
This should only cost your time but will take a lot of effort and patience from your end.
It may take a while but will definitely work.
