But what we REALLY need is somebody with the right attitude. First and foremost, we need a professional; somebody who is hyper-organizedefficient, diligent, and supportive. Secondly, we need somebody who legitimately wants to be a part of the team, not just because they need a job but because accounting is in their blood and detailed reporting is practically a way of life!

We deal with these challenges by talking about them and working together to get through it. I know everybody says this but, well and truly, we need Employees who care. It is a challenging work environment with a lot of rewarding features. We need people with a stick-to-it-iveness, willing to stick with us, and help contribute to the success of the Company.

  • A really great team. OK, OK, I know everybody says this but hear me out. It’s true and it’s important. We’re a community. Everybody is responsible for mowing their own lawn, the neighbor helps water your plants when you’re on holiday, and at the end of the day, it’s just a nice place to live.
  • A mutually respectful and beneficial relationship between Employee and Company. What else can we say about that? We’re in this together.
