Have you signed a training contract?
Are you going for interviews to sign a training contract?
Let me give you an edge that will improve your interviews and your work experience!
Do you want to know what firms want to see from their new clerks? What frustrates them? What impresses them? Hint: It's often NOT your technical knowledge, system processes and ability to do complex calculations!
I've surveyed and spoken to firms on your behalf, and designed a 3 hour course to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what they want from you:
- Billable vs Non-billable hours
- Skills you should start your traineeship with
- 'Soft skills' are far more important than your studies might lead you to believe
- Your traineeship is not your studies. Some of these differences really affect your learning
- Your ability to deal with criticism is crucial
Go through this before you start, before your interviews... and I guarantee that you'll reduce the frustration that you feel during your contract... because you'll understand what your firm wants from you... and WHY!
I've lectured Auditing, coached and mentored Accounting students on their professional and academic journey for over a decade.
I've always said that our mindset is another major subject in our subject, but we get no classes or textbooks for it! To this end, I spend a lot of time researching how our brains work and how habits are formed and changed. Most interestingly, I've spent a lot of time working on how these things relate specifically to Accounting students, given their strengths and challenges.
I share insights and support on my Blog on a regular basis.
