Hiring a Full-Time Accountant
You're already running an established business. You've been doing the books yourself for years, and now you're ready to hire your very own in-house accountant. Ideally, you'll hire someone with more accounting experience than you - you're an expert at running a business, you need someone who's an expert in accounting. But how will you find this awesome accountant? That's where I come in...
We'll work together to determine what your day-to-day accounting needs are, whether you're looking for someone part-time or full-time, and what you can afford to pay this new accountant. From there, I'll draft and post a job description for you, cull through the (many) resumes your job will receive, and give you the top candidates. If needed, I'll sit in on the interview process, assessing the candidates' technical accounting skills and giving my recommendations for best candidate based on cultural fit and accounting expertise. It can be difficult to find a successful new hire, I can help.
