Updated Accounting Recruiting Guide & /r/Accounting Posting Guidelines
Hey All, as the subreddit has nearly tripled its userbase and viewing activity since I first submitted the recruiting guide nearly two years ago, I felt it was time to expand on the guide as well as state some posting guidelines for our community as it continues to grow, currently averaging over 100k unique users and nearly 800k page views per month.
This accounting recruiting guide has more than double the previous content provided which includes additional tips and a more in-depth analysis on how to prepare for interviews and the overall recruiting process.
Also, please take the time to read over the following guidelines which will help improve the quality of posts on the subreddit as well as increase the quality of responses received when asking for advice or help:
r/Accounting Posting Guidelines:
Use the search function and look at the resources in the sidebar prior to submitting a question. Chances are your question or a similar question has been asked before which can help you ask a more detailed question if you did not find what you’re looking for through a search.
Remember to add “flair” after submitting a post to help the community easily identify the type of post submitted.
When requesting career advice, provide enough information for your background and situation including but not limited to: your region, year in school, graduation date, plans to reach 150 hours, and what you’re looking to achieve.
When asking for homework help, provide all your attempted work first and specifically ask what you’re having trouble with. We are not a sweatshop to give out free answers, but we will help you figure it out.
You are all encouraged to submit current event articles in order to spark healthy discussion and debate among the community.
If providing advice from personal experience on the subreddit, please remember to keep in mind and take into account that experiences can vary based on region, school, and firm and not all experiences are equal. With that in mind, for those receiving advice, remember to take recommendations here with a grain of salt as well.
Do not delete posts, especially submissions under a throwaway. Once a post is deleted, it can no longer be used as a reference tool for the rest of the community. Part of the benefit of asking questions here is to share the knowledge of others. By deleting posts, you’re preventing future subscribers from learning from your thread.
If you have any questions about the recruiting guide or posting guidelines, please feel free to comment below.
