My friend recently interviewed for a job which had over 80 applicants. Three others that I know are dropping everything to accept jobs in Guam, Massachusetts and Oregon, each of which is hundreds, if not thousands, of miles from where they currently live. Some are temporarily leaving families behind in hopes of finding something more stable and lucrative than what’s locally available.
Unemployment rates continue to rise, indicating that perhaps the economy isn’t yet on the rebound. This means that the competition for current job openings is severe. These days, having a friend look over your resume or asking a contact put in a good word for you may not be enough to measure up and secure a good position. In times like these, job placement services can be extremely valuable.
Universal Accounting Center Offers Supreme Support
Universal has always offered stellar support services for those who are currently enrolled or have recently graduated from our programs. These individuals are given access to a Personal Achievement Coach who can answer questions about the training programs, accounting and tax preparation and other related issues. These coaches are there to provide answers, support and encouragement. Here’s what former student Renee Latimer had to say about her experience with support coach Bill Brough:
Bill Brough has been an integral part of the success that I am enjoying today. His constant support and encouragement during those times that I was overwhelmed with the volume of course material and faced with self-doubt were extremely helpful. He was always available to answer questions, get me thinking on the right track or provide a funny anecdote or real life experience which kept my spirits and kept me moving forward towards my goals. He never stopped believing in me, and this helped me believe in myself. – Renee Latimer
Universal’s support for those enrolled in the Professional Bookkeeper (PB), QuickBooks Specialist (QS), and Professional Tax Preparer (PTP) programs also includes the following job placement services:
- Resume Preparation – Assistance, via email, reviewing and developing a resume for the purpose of securing interviews
- Resume Placement Assistance – Help identifying possible employers and accounting-related positions by following a weekly routine
- Interviewing Technique Review – Role play advice and suggestions in improving the success of job interviews
With the Job Placement Assistance course you have access to these services throughout the follow-up support period that comes with each of our programs. During that time you can contact your Personal Achievement Coach as often as necessary, taking advantage of their knowledge, experience and expertise.
The Universal Accounting Program gave me the confidence I needed to pursue a job as an Asst. Controller, that most people would say I was not qualified for. Because of the changes to the real estate market this job was short lived but I have since become employed as a Full Charge Bookkeeper at a retail home and garden store. Thank you Universal Accounting Center for giving me the confidence I lacked and the belief in my abilities to know what I am worth. – Nancy Martinez
