Basic Tips and Tricks for Surviving a CPA Recruit:

  1. Do Your Research- Attend as many networking events as possible in order to familiarize yourself with the different firms and their recruiters. Create and maintain connections with recruiters.
  2. Be Prepared- Create a resume and cover letter that looks professional and represents you well.
  3. Look the Part- Dress professionally and be conscious of your body language and posture.
  4. Ask the Right Questions- Ask questions that were not answered in the job description and take the time to research the company before hand in order to demonstrate your knowledge while speaking with firms.
  5. Have a Goal in Mind- Establish an idea of what type of firm you would like to work for and how you want your career to grow. Your goals and ideas should align with those of the firm you work for in order for you to be a good addition. 

Each firm has their own hiring timeline and practices. Be sure to check the firm’s website for information on their application process/timeline.
