Tax University Program Graduates Searching To Find Tax Jobs Meet Corporate Tax Leaders Online

Tax graduates work very hard to obtain a great education; they are then booted from the education nest only to struggle in finding a tax job. I was determined to find a solution to this problem and knew the only way to solve it was build it for tax graduates.  What I learned consulting to multinational tax clients for thirty years was the challenge they faced finding and connecting with a fresh group of new tax graduates each year. Hundreds of times, tax executives of major corporations would ask me “Where are the tax graduates? How can we find them?  If I could find an inexperienced tax graduate I would hire them but how do I find them?” The truth is there has always been a “Connectivity Problem” between students graduating from tax university programs and corporate tax management.

If you think students can attend job faires and connect with the hiring managers of a corporate tax department to find a tax job…well, it just does not happen that way! A company’s human resources team sends nontax people out to the university job faires to recruit. These representatives do not understand or speak tax. In addition, corporate tax executives are simply too busy meeting tax deadlines to attend recruiting faires on campuses. Then people may think “Well, human resources took my application.” No luck there for tax graduates or tax hiring managers either as this is where the big disconnect really occurs! What really happens is these tax resumes gets delivered to what I call the big black hole in the corporate universe; it is somewhere in a vast applicant tracking system space that never understands if there is a match or not. What is a tax graduate or any tax executive to do to find each other more effectively? Connectivity is now available because TaxConnections built a solution… .

Companies can now save thousands of dollars advertising on a niche tax site and tax graduates can breathe a sigh of relief knowing they will be in front of tax executives looking at them. Each tax graduate is encouraged to go to their virtual tax office and upload 3 examples of their writing into their personal Tax Library. This gives employers a look into tax projects tax graduates have worked on in school. Every prospective employer wants to see how well a person can communicate effectively in writing! Examples of written reports you completed for professors as a student are extraordinarily valuable tools to utilize when you want to get hired. As a new tax graduate with no work history in tax, use all your written projects in university tax programs to promote your body of knowledge. All your hard-won efforts in writing these reports for your professors will go a long way to promote your skills to a prospective employer! TaxConnections provides a valuable online Tax Library to upload your written reports to enable corporate tax leaders to see your capabilities and find you easily on!

I invite tax graduates and tax leaders to join TaxConnections and enjoy the many new innovations arising in our exciting community.

If you are leading a corporate tax department or tax consulting firm, get your professional profile on TaxConnections to attract new tax graduates to you.

Kat Jennings, TaxConnections, CEO and Founder and Advisory Team provides three areas of services: 1) Internationally recognized, retained executive search services for multinational corporations, public accounting firms, and law firms; 2) Introductions of sellers to buyers of small and medium size accounting firms; and 3) Provide brand building and education services that support and prepare accounting firm owners to buy/sell an accounting practice. We focus on educating the journey to sell a practice and how to increase firm revenue prior to any sale. Our program ensures you start years prior to a sale by learning what is expected of you during the selling process, and introducing firm Partners to cross selling opportunities that are easy to implement and reduce your workload at the same time. We introduce you to value added connections to smartly grow revenue in your accounting practice.

Kat Jennings has been retained by organizations worldwide to locate tax professionals with highly specialized tax knowledge and expertise. She has a thorough understanding of the tax business community, with a proven record of stellar performances matching professionals with organizations. Bringing two parties together to work successfully is the art of understanding personalities, cultural fit, expectations by both parties, flexible or inflexible work environments, understanding what drives and motivates each party, and revolves around the personality and ethics of each executive team.

Kat is a widely recognized expert in high level, tax executive search, as well as connecting buyers and sellers of accounting firms. TaxConnections provides and educates small to medium size accounting firms owners and Partners how to prepare and sell their firms so they can build a succession plan for their retirement. With larger firms seeking to acquire smaller accounting practices, there is a real need to help firm owners prepare to be acquired. Most firm owners are unaware they are not ready to sell when they decide to retire. TaxConnections educates firm owners’ what they need to do years in advance of selling an accounting firm practice.
Senior tax executives expect the utmost privacy when being introduced to multinational organizations about a new tax opportunity under consideration. Having said that, companies searching for a new head of tax expecting tax executive candidates to submit their resume through a resume portal, will never see a full slate of outstanding tax executives available due to a candidates’ desire for greater privacy. This is why privacy focused Uber Tax Recruiters consistently outperform in-house recruiters on tax executive searches.

We offer our clients a Performance Retainer Agreement arrangement so their HR department can still recruit and compete with the tax candidates we present on Head of Tax searches. The client pays us a partial fee upfront, and if they find a candidate they deem better than we introduce to them, we forfeit the final fee. Most of the time, they love and prefer our private introductions to tax executive candidates better than what they source through their own resume portals.

When we represent selling/buying small to medium-sized firms, firm owners/partners also demand greater privacy when considering the sale of their practice. TaxConnections provides a safe place to discuss their business needs, elevate their practices’ online reputation, and increase revenue through new streams of business development by outsourcing work and partnering with other firms. Over three decades, we have worked tirelessly to build relationships between firm owners most organizations rarely have access to in the world of tax. There are numerous possibilities you may never have considered previously to bolster the value of your practice and service offerings.

  • A very modest but slowly increasing carbon tax is something the nation should have commenced already. It probably wont do this for foreseeable future (until the situation is dire) but California should lead the way as it has before on so much.
