Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) July 21, 2011
There is some good news for those unemployed, and that is tax season is around the corner. While that may not sound like good news at first blush, Liberty Tax Service is ramping up tax schools to hire those seeking full and part-time seasonal employment. With the U.S. unemployment rate hovering just above 9%, learning a new skill comes at a timely point in the economy. Liberty Tax, the fastest growing tax preparation company ever, will need to hire about 40,000 tax preparers around the country to fuel the company’s growth.
“Tax school offers individuals the opportunity to learn a new skill that is always needed and therefore opens doors for employment going forward,” says Martha O’Gorman, Chief Marketing Officer and co-Founder of Liberty Tax Service. “Those who receive job offers will demonstrate that they possess a combination of tax knowledge and a passion for customer service. While we have many returning tax preparers, our rapid growth necessitates that we hire additional tax preparers for the upcoming season. Likewise, we offer continued education opportunities for our returning tax preparers,” adds O’Gorman.
