Employers Look at AAT

Hi All,

Some interesting news about changes in employers interests..

An accounting body expert from within AAT’s new Regional Account Manager team has revealed a noticeable shift in the interests of employers.
According to Justin Kyriakou, AAT’s Regional Account Manager for the North West and Yorkshire, the increasing popularity of online e-learning courses provided by well-established accounting bodies is due to the fact that employers are beginning to recognise the value in hiring promising but non-qualified students over costly graduates, as the former can be easily trained up through online courses.
This may come as welcome news for school-leavers and those looking for a change in career!

    Well saying that, I've got a friend who's been trying for a couple of months at big time companies and firms, I think the trick is to aim low, and not expect a job too high in the ranks, otherwise you most likely wont find one at all.

    Thanks,
