Prepare for success

It's been awhile since I've been on a College campus for any type of business matter.  Many, many years ago I was just another student looking for a job offer.  Last night, I was invited to a meet and greet at my old campus.  I thought it was a function where students ask practicing accountants what's it like to be in the Accounting field.  I was mistaken.

I showed up in a guyabera and slacks (hey, it's hot in San Antonio).  The other employers were in more traditional business garb. The meet and greet was in fact a job fair.  Yes, I felt underdressed.

Still, the students were dressed for success and much more polished than I had been in my time as a student.  Though technical expertise is one of the baselines which you need for a job in the workforce, the social skills are just as valuable and oftentimes are the difference in a job offer and being out of luck. 

This current generation of students who I had the pleasure of meeting last night is in my opinion, definitely prepared for success.

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.
