I am always at a loss as to what I should say about myself when I get to sections like this. How do you "describe yourself" in a span of letters in a little box, and how valid is it really? It could all be made a lie tomorrow. You cannot know someone from a text box.

    I got called in for an interview by the Bank of New York!  They have a branch here and I might end up working as a Staff Accountant for them.  That is just so bloody awesome!  They are one of the oldest (if not the oldest) banks in the United States, so for me, as a starting accountant, this is a really big deal.… [more]

  • BNY Interview

    Posted on: August 1st, 2012 at 5:41PM

    Well that was exhausting.  There's some hope (just some) that I may be able to actually get this job, but I'm feeling that my interviewer really wants someone with a little more experience.  But, you can't always get what you want.  Like paid parking, for instance.Seriously, the job is for one of the largest banks in the country, but I either have to pay the $25 a day to park, or take public transportation, which doesn't actually exist where I live.  Still, I will cross that bridge if and when I get there.  Until then, I've just got to keep looking.… [more]

  • You have such an awesome resume!

    Posted on: August 3rd, 2012 at 6:00PM

    I hear this a lot.  I've heard this from recruiters who promised that I would be able to get  a job through them easily within two weeks (It has now been a month since my first interview with a recruiter, and they haven't gotten me so much as an interview).  I've hear it from people saying they wished they'd known of my existence nine months ago.  Of course, nine months ago I was working.  I've heard it from people who then followed it up with, "but you don't have enough experience."  Needless to say, hearing over and over again how I should have been picked up by now is not exactly conducive to confidence when the people saying it are turning you down.Yesterday, something new happened.  I w… [more]

    I'm working for a small CPA firm, and it's amazing.  Finally, doing the type of work I've been trained to do, working with the type of people who get that.  I'm having a blast.  Also passed FAR, my first CPA examination.  Prepping for Audit.  Wheeee!… [more]
