In part 3 of our professional network series with Roger CPA Review’s Senior Business Development Director, Tom Rogowski, CPA, discusses ways for new accountants to meet their accounting career goals while increasing their salary.
Most new accountants, specifically those who just graduated from a university, need to bring a number of positive attributes to their first accounting jobs. Important qualities to have as a new accountant are confidence, a collaborative nature, leadership skills and the ability to adapt to new situations. Many new accountants have a “right here, right now" approach to their careers and tend to be more entrepreneurial in spirit while challenging the status quo. My advice to those individuals would be to think longer term.
