Supporting Information for Candidates

 
 
Can We Help You?

If you are a CANDIDATE seeking employment (even if not actively), we may be able to advise you about current or future tax opportunities if you meet all of the following basic criteria:

  • Have a minimum of 2 years current experience working in a full-time tax capacity with either a CPA, law firm or in private industry.
  • Live and/or work anywhere in the continental United States.

What Type of Potential Candidates Are You Least Likely To Help Find a Position For?

Being a small highly-specialized firm, we can only attempt to help a finite type of individual with their search. Unfortunately, we spend more time then we'd like dealing with people who have a lot to offer potential employers, but would best be served by using more general recruiters or other placement firms that are tailored to their existing specialties. Accordingly, set forth below is a partial list of the backgrounds of these type of job-seekers :

"Non-tax people" (i.e., Controllers, etc) This includes anyone who does not perform most of their daily functions (at least 80%) working in the tax capacity (virtually all-year round-not just "tax season")   

Sole-Practitioners (a.k.a self-employed) professionals. An exception would
be if this is merely a temporary situation in-between jobs for less than a year.  

"High-level" tax executives(from the private sector) with salaries over $150,000 per year. (exception: if in public accounting and want to go to another CPA firm)  

Full-time students,  recent graduates and/or entry-level job seekers.   

Attorneys looking for employment only with law firms.   

People looking to make a "career change".  

Candidates looking to relocate to/from the geographical areas we cover and expect the prospective employee to pay for the relocation. 

If you specialize in "expatriate/foreign National/International assignee" work.
