Best Opportunity For Accounting Graduates In 2020 And Beyond

Accounting Graduate Opportunities

What is the best opportunity for accounting graduates in 2020?

Well before we can answer that question, first it’s crucial to realize that accounting graduates for 2020 are entering a thoroughly altered employment landscape, and one that’s continuing to shift under our feet.

The traditional employment route envisioned by many college graduates in accounting—get your first job at a big accounting firm, then evaluate your options once you have a few years’ experience at a big firm—is becoming less appealing and less available with each passing year.  This article from Accounting Today, based on an AICPA study, shows that accounting firm hiring of college accounting graduates is down by 30% over the past few years.  For existing employees at these larger accounting firms, pay cuts and layoffs are happening with regularity.

What Is the Best Marketing Technique for Tax Professionals?

What is the best marketing technique for tax professionals?  If you could only choose one marketing method, what would it be?  This is a common dilemma all tax professionals face: how can I concentrate my marketing efforts on stuff that actually works?

Most tax pros answer this dilemma by saying that referrals are the best marketing method.  Yes, agreed, referrals are the best way to acquire new clients.  The “catch” with referrals is that it’s something that’s outside of our control.  It’s something that someone else does.  Yes, there are ways that we can increase the likelihood, quantity, and quality of referrals—and we absolutely should do those things, as a top priority—but I can’t wake up this morning and control whether or not someone refers me.

In the course of serving thousands of tax clients myself, while also training and supporting over 20,000 of my fellow tax professionals through Pronto Tax School, I’ve noticed one marketing technique that works better than any other for tax professionals seeking to grow your client base and your career.
