Education is important but so is experience

We are on the verge of another class of students graduating from colleges and universities.  I remember back to when I entered the work force after completing school.  I began my professional career full of theory but with no experience.  I stared looking for a job and like many others before me and after me faced the paradox.  "I would hire you if only you had experience".  That phrase was uttered by a few potential employers.  My response was the same as many thousands of others.  "How can I get experience if I am not hired?"
 
Well, many years have passed since I had to "cut my teeth" and now I have experience in both the corporate world (having worked for a number of companies with each larger than the one before) and in my own business.
 
I am grateful for those employers who allowed me the opportunity to learn on the job.  Through them, I was mentored on new ways of doing things.  I view that time of my life as a paid internship for what I do now which is to run my own company.
 
Like I said, education is important but experience is equally so.
 
I am a CPA in San Antonio and provide bookkeeping, payroll, taxes and more.  We offer a free initial visit and look forward to serving your business needs.
