Don’t Get Laid Off -Recession-Proof Your Job

The Best Career Advancement Tool is Also Your Safety Net

Don’t be nervous. Next to getting fired, nothing makes employees more uneasy than hearing that their company is in the middle of a merger. Depending on your particular place in the company, this may or may not mean that your position is in danger.It may be difficult to determine the vulnerability of your particular job, but you have a lot of options. At Universal Accounting, we meet people every week who have been the victims of corporate mergers, downsizing or layoffs.Many people have successfully chosen our program as the option for their future. There is good news. An accounting and tax preparation education from Universal Accounting provides a safety net for you and your family. Whether you want to improve you chances for staying in your present job or want to strike out on your own with an Accounting and Tax Business, Universal Accounting has a program that makes it possible.

How Can I Say This?

We informally surveyed 100 of our graduates last year at their one year graduation anniversary. Of those 100 people, 75 of them were working in the field of accounting or had been promoted to a management position.Many of these people had no experience in bookkeeping or accounting until they purchased our course. As they worked through the practice sets of books in our course, they built a solid foundation of experience and knowledge that helps them contribute on a fundamental level to the profitability of the small businesses they work with.The economic climate for small business is so competitive today that businesses all over the country are realizing that without a complete and thorough understanding of the accounting process, they are crippled. Those who take the opportunity to learn these valuable skills contribute to the profitability of those small businesse. Their potential for earning a great income and creating a wonderful lifestyle is just there for the taking.

I Don’t Have a College Degree… Does That Hurt My Chances?

Absolutely not. Colleges and Universities don’t prepare you for working with the accounting issues that face small businesses. (Despite the fact that 85% of our economy is wrapped up in small business.) They focus on teaching corporate accounting and analysis.Universal Accounting has been teaching small business accounting since 1979… that’s over 25 years. We’re the small business experts. Our graduates all over the country help small businesses from dry cleaners to bicycle shops. These graduates contribute to these businesses’ financial bottom-line every day. And as your clients become more profitable, they will happily do the same for you.

“You Never Know What’s Going to Happen.”

Brad Karsh, president of JobBound, a Chicago career-counseling company says. “The situation is highly volatile.”Conventional wisdom used to be that if you were part of the company making the acquisition, you were safe, but that isn’t the case any more. There is no way to know for sure if you will be a casualty of a merger, regardless of which side of the merger you’re on.In today’s uncertain economy, you can protect yourself and your family from the uncertainty that follows a corporate merger. Of course, it takes a proactive approach… an investment in yourself.

The “Right” Investment in Yourself Protects You and Your Family

Whether you plan to stay in the corporate world or start your own business, a complete education in accounting and tax provides a great safety net. Skilled and qualified bookkeepers and accountants will always be in demand regardless of the industry. And these skills enable you to create a wonderful part-time income working out of your home as well.As long as the government requires companies to maintain accounting records and file income taxes, the profession of bookkeeping and accounting will not go away. For job security that has existed since before the Italian Renaissance, I have not found a better opportunity available anywhere.
