CFOs Advise Accounting Grads to Think Small

"For accounting graduates, landing a job at one of the big accounting firms or a large corporation has been the traditional first step in a career. But chief financial officers are now counselling them to 'think small'."

"Thirty six per cent of 271 CFOs in Canadian companies polled in the survey developed by Accountemps said they would advise entry-level professionals to being their careers at small to mid sized companies. And 28 percent recommended starting with small to mid sized companies. Another 21 percent suggested a large public accounting firm and just 9 percent advised a large corporation."
