If you are like most accountants you are probably very bright, highly motivated and working really hard. You may even be highly respected by your colleagues. You probably have got or are working towards your professional qualifications.
Deep down you know that you have the potential to progress in your career but you are finding it a struggle to achieve what you want.
People often assume that getting on in your career is just about qualifications and good job interview technique. While important, what I have noticed is that those who are more successful are much more strategic in their approach.
Hi I’m Duncan Brodie and since 2006 I have been helping accountants achieve more success in their career. Having climbed the career ladder from Payments Clerk to Finance Director I learned first hand what it takes to achieve success from a career in accountancy. During that time I worked in large organisations like the NHS, PwC, E&Y and TSB.
|You are not crystal clear on what you want. The reality is that very few of us ever take the time to sit down and really consider what we want, let alone set specific goals.|
|You really don’t know what your best skills and attributes are. I am sure that like most you have an annual appraisal where you review your performance. This review is limited however to the specific role that you are currently undertaking. Chances are there are a whole host of skills and attributes that are not being utilised.|
|You are going through the motions rather than really focusing on contributing to the success of your organisation. Maybe you are continuing to do the core well but nothing else. Perhaps fear is stopping you get out of your comfort zone.|
|You are doing little or nothing to develop yourself personally and professionally. When I started my career in accountancy in 1980 employers tended to take care of this. They organised courses, they had their own specialist training centres and made the investment in people. The general economic conditions mean that this is less common and means continual professional development becomes your responsibility.|
|You really don’t know how to effectively market yourself. A CV or Resume is still one of your most important assets in getting on in your career. Having reviewed thousands of them, the standard is at best mediocre and in many cases poor.|
|You can get job interviews but not get the job. Everyone has setbacks and rejections from time to time. If on the other hand you are getting a high number of interviews but not getting offers, chances are you need to improve your interview technique.|
If you can relate to one or more of the above help is at hand. I know that there are many people out there would love to have the opportunity to work with me one to one or in a small group. At the same I know that this is not feasible for everyone.
I originally launched this as a Kindle Book and if you prefer it in this format you can get online at Amazon.
If you don’t have a Kindle you can purchase the e-book for immediate download to your computer.
One of the things I wanted to do with this e-book was to make it accessible to just about anyone in accountancy who wants to achieve more career success.
For that reason I took the conscious decision to offer this at the same low price I am offering the Kindle Book at £0.99.
Now you might be thinking that at £0.99 it is not going to be very good.
So let me take the risk away from you completely. If you buy this e-book and it does not provide you with what you expected, just send me an e-mail and I will happily send you a refund.
Don’t waste time staying stuck any longer
Remember this e-book is priced at a level that makes accessible to anyone whatever their budget and comes with a no questions asked guarantee.
So what difference would achieving more career success make to you financially and in other ways?
One promotion could add thousands of pounds to your salary in one year without even considering the impact on your long term earnings
As you progress in your career your confidence grows and your motivation increases. We all like to be moving forward and achieving more.
You feel more fulfilled personally and professionally.
Don’t waste time staying stuck in your career any longer. Make a small investment to start moving forward and achieving what you want.
