Accountingfly, the only online job board and networking site focused on accounting careers from internships through experienced hires, has launched a new free webinar series. This weekly series is uniquely structured to provide career advice and guidance on a wide range of topics, from proper business etiquette to hands-on advice and insights from accounting practitioners and human resources professionals at top 100 firms. University accounting programs are also lending their advice and experience to provide further career guidance.
Accountingfly CEO Jeff Phillips shares, “I am beyond excited about this initiative. The accounting profession has many different career opportunities and people at each stage of their career have questions that need to be answered.”
“Looking for a job is an emotional experience,” he went on, “and our goal is to make it easier for professionals at all levels to figure out where they will get the most out of their jobs. Big firm or smaller firm? Private or public? Finding a new position in a different geographic area. The top five things students need to know as they embark on their accounting careers. These are some of the topics our webinars will cover. It’s very fulfilling to play a role in helping people succeed.”
The webinar series is being led by Deanna Laird, Accountingfly’s National Director of University Services, who noted that input from the audience is welcomed. “Sometimes people are afraid to ask questions,” she stated, “but in this forum they don’t have to be. All questions are important, especially for new graduates who are making the leap from student to working professional—one of the biggest life challenges they ever will face.”
This week’s webinar, coming up on Thursday, April 16 at 2pm EDT, is being presented by Andrew Argue, CPA and Host of The Bean Counter. Argue will be discussing the timely topic of Transitioning from Accounting Student to Professional. “This might be the biggest change in their lives,” stated Argue. “Many new graduates are entering a world they aren’t very familiar with. Depending on the employer they will be working at, it can be a real wake-up call.”
Accountingfly CEO Jeff Phillips agrees, “We’ve helped many students choose the best opportunities for them. New hires want to succeed. They want to stand out. But for most new hires, it will be their first time in an office. It might be their first time on a working team or meeting with clients. It’s a big change, but Andrew has been there. He has a unique story, and we expect to gain a lot of good information as a result of his session.”
