Last Chance to Read Our Best Accounting and Finance Blogs From This Year

With the end of the year fast approaching and 2020 hot on its heels, it becomes a great time to take stock of 2019. Excitement reigned supreme in the accounting and financial industries as technology continued to disrupt operations in a mostly positive manner. The New Year is also poised for a continued strong economy and industry growth.

So take advantage of the season for a look back at some of our top blogs from 2019. Hopefully, their insights provide some food for thought as you set goals for the upcoming year.

Are You Onboarding New Accountants Effectively?

The onboarding process is an essential part of ensuring new hires come up to speed as quickly as possible. This is especially the case with accountants having to learn new policies, procedures, and applications. Having a well-considered onboarding plan – and executing it – is vital.

This popular blog from January takes a look at onboarding accountants. Creating a standardized process helps ensure your new hire is productive soon after their first day. Having a mentor for them to shadow makes your new employee genuinely feel part of the team.

Should You Give Up On The “Perfect” Accounting Candidate?

With a strong economy continuing, the job market remains tight. In this environment, it becomes essential for companies to hire qualified accounting candidates quickly. This popular blog post from 2019 looks at why waiting for the proverbial “perfect” candidate isn’t always the best approach.

In short, letting “perfect be the enemy of good” causes companies to miss out on potential new employees, while waiting for a candidate in the 99th percentile. Additionally, an overly long interview process also hampers companies’ ability to make the right hire. In the end, focusing on cultural fit as opposed to the “best résumé” is wise.

Beat Out The Competition to Land Your Dream Job

Even with a low unemployment rate, the competition for the best accounting and financial positions is typically fierce. If you recently applied for one of these top roles, don’t worry. After all, it’s still possible to land your dream job.

This top blog post from earlier this year challenges candidates to differentiate themselves from the competition. Making a connection with an interviewer is also essential. Ultimately, staying positive throughout the hiring process gives you the best chance.
