Right now the jobs market for recently qualified accountants is ….tricky. Here’s why:
- Tricky because there are less roles available. Less roles = higher competition.
- Tricky because there are more recently qualified accountants available for a while (few have moved overseas for example). More supply = higher competition + compounding point 1.
- Tricky because hiring managers are expecting more today than they did yesterday. Higher expectations = higher barriers to entry ( in other words a smaller near environment considered…. for those of you who are Barden Career Model coached 😉
The funny thing though… the above holds true in general but what applies, in general, does not always apply in the specific. A complicated way of saying theory and practice do not always see eye to eye.
In Barden we work more on exclusive roles these days. Why? Because we know all about theory and practice. We know that when you partner with the right hiring manager you can marry the specifics of their requirements to the practical realities of the external market. You can help them to understand the micro supply and demand forces relevant to their particular requirements. You can get the right people access to the right roles, regardless of how tricky the market.
