Using The BIG Job Boards, Pros and Cons


Generalist job boards are a great place to begin the job search for a new job in accounting. Although they do cater for all industries, you do have the facility to search solely within accountancy. They provide many opportunities from a broad range of recruitment agencies and direct clients and allow you to compare the differences between the jobs all on one site. The beauty of these sites is there are so many opportunities to look through and compare.

Accounting Job Alerts
They let you set up job alerts for relevant accounting jobs so they can let you know about new opportunities as soon as they are registered online.

CV Database
Because the generalist job boards are larger than the niche sites, more recruiters will use the CV database and being registered will increase your chances of being contacted about potential accounting job opportunities.

They provide you with a wide range of locations, especially of interest if you are looking to re-locate. You can search through the various accounting jobs online in different locations comparing the salaries on offer and opportunities available.

Mistakes Made In Job Interviews

Since no two interviews are alike, it is difficult to be prepared for what lies ahead, but you can focus on your presentation skills, which may be even more important than what you have to say. Three areas of performance, which should be considered dangerous and deadly, are worth spending some time thinking about before your next interview.

1. Poor non-verbal communication image

It’s about demonstrating confidence –

– Stand straight, and make good eye contact. (Note the color of the interviewer’s eyes.)

– Connect with a good, firm handshake. (There’s nothing like a limp response in a handshake.)

– Sit erect and lean forward in the chair, appearing interested and attentive. (Slumping denotes a lazy attitude.)

That first impression can be a great beginning, or a quick ending to your interview.

2. Poor verbal communication skills

Your interviewer is giving you information, either directly or indirectly.

– Good communication skills include listening and letting the person know you heard what they said.

– Observe your interviewer’s style and pace and match that style, adjusting your style and pace

Some Useful Tips before An Interview

# Scour the job posting for clues as to what the hiring manager is looking for in a candidate. Think of examples where you demonstrated the skills that appear in the job posting and develop answers that clearly show an employer that you are the perfect candidate for this position. All sound bites should be 2-3 minutes in length.

# Use the TODAY acronym to develop additional sound bites of your experiences. TODAY stands for Teamwork, Overcoming Obstacles, Duties of your past positions, Achievements, Your strengths and weaknesses. Remember to clearly describe exactly what you did in each situation. The employer is hiring you, not the other people in your story.

# Research the company. Search the internet for any recent press releases and check out the company’s website. Know what they do, and develop some idea as to how the position you are hiring for fits within the company.

# Think of questions to ask an interviewer. Look at the job posting and your research about the company and think of 3-5 questions you can ask during the interview. What are you curious about? Do they manufacture a product you are familiar with, or never even knew existed
