San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
WorkSimple (http://getworksimple.com/), the social performance platform that helps individuals, teams, and large organizations set focuses, share social goals, get feedback, and boost results, is changing the way accountants manage their careers through its new Personal Edition. The Personal Edition helps these professionals manage their accomplishments and advance their careers with a platform that’s as easy to use as their favorite social network.
In the past, showing off your accomplishments by way of a personal portfolio was a something only artists or designers could do with platforms like Behance or Carbonmade. Now, WorkSimple’s Personal Edition allows any working professional, including accountants, to manage what they do well through a visual storyboard of goals, accomplishments, endorsements, and more.
“Accounting, like many other professions, can be hard to translate to the everyday person if they’re not in the industry themselves,” said Morgan Norman, co-founder and CEO of WorkSimple. “More than that, though, having a visual portfolio that goes beyond a standard resume can help accountants to show what they’ve developed, what they’re working on, and ultimately share their complete professional story with others.”
Here’s how it works: Alex, an accountant at the Roscoe Financial Agency, signs up for an individual account. Through WorkSimple’s Personal Edition, he can create goals or milestones he wants to achieve this month. The President, as well as his co-workers and managers, can give him real-time feedback, endorsements, and even “likes” regarding his progress. Alex can also keep track of all his goals -- as well as show off his accounting accomplishments -- through reports, which can be generated whenever he wants.
In addition, accountants can use analytics on the Personal Edition to see who’s checking out their work and who’s giving them feedback, as well as showcase their accomplishments externally through LinkedIn and Twitter. This can be particularly helpful if Alex decides to leave Roscoe Financial Agency to look for accounting opportunities elsewhere. The combination of all of these features can help professionals like Alex to build their professional brand in the accounting industry and shape him as a solid practitioner.
“Many professionals in the accounting industry face the challenge of not only showcasing what they’ve done, but also how they got there and what results were produced, whether it’s documenting financial transactions, maintaining great customer service, developing research reports, or creating and executing accounting strategies,” said Ben Moore, co-founder and CTO of WorkSimple. “WorkSimple’s Personal Edition allows anyone in the accounting space to translate these achievements to a visual portfolio of goals, feedback, endorsements, and accomplishments, helping them get the recognition they deserve. This is something traditional portfolio platforms just don’t do.”
