What advice do you have for talking to accounting industry recruiters?

It is important to build a relationship with recruiters. This relationship building will allow them the opportunity to get to know you as a candidate and will help you stand out in comparison to other candidates who did not establish a memorable impression. You can do this in the following ways:

  1. Ask questions that display interest in them and the firm. Make sure to listen attentively to their responses so that follow up questions are not asking something they already answered.
  2. If you attend an event with many representatives from a firm, then make sure to talk to employees on all levels to understand what it will be like to work at that firm/company.
  3. Sell yourself. They are evaluating you as much as you are evaluating them.
