Today we offer you some best-practice tips as a public accountant with some experience, and a desire to enhance your career. Take these steps, and create more offers and options for yourself in considering a job change.
In today’s public-accounting-firm market, a candidate-driven market, we offer you three ideas
#1: Put all of your work experience on the resume. Gaps in a resume can undermine credibility; non-accounting experiences should be included gives you a broader look, and shows that you can adapt and learn. If you worked in retail or the service industry, at least put employer names and titles and dates . Show them where you’ve been. Adaptability creates a stronger portrait.
#2: Be aware of your on-line presence. Candidates who forget this secret or just do not believe it will override their talent miss the fact that you can set yourself up for failure. Go look at your social profile page and see what it says about you. Remember the persona you create on Twitter or Instagram or Facebook is every bit as accessible as your LinkedIn profile, and that fact can undermine an otherwise outstanding contributor-candidate.
#3. Prepare to give examples of what you’ve done. Remember, stories sell. Get specific examples developed, either write them out, or use your phone to record them, rehearse these value-added examples of what you’ve done, and the gravitas of your presentation goes up immensely.
Finally, remember, in accounting firm interviews, peer-interviews can carry immense weight, so be at your best with everyone you meet. If you are an experienced tax person or auditor, and want to consider a change, contact us, text, email or call using the information below.
