Have You Audited Your Work/Life Balance?
Most of us, at some point in our lives, have worked in accounting firms and private companies that are stale and uninspiring. Whether it’s your irritation with the horrendous Monday morning commute or the cubicles that confine your creativity to just four walls.
Plus, there is the additional downside of choosing to spend 12 hours of your day with your associate Brian Schumer, instead of enjoying your evening having dinner with your spouse and children.
But work, and your life doesn’t always have to turn out this way. You can make changes, request different work schedules, and strike a balance between what you choose to spend your time on, every single day.
This is where Flex CPAs comes into play. We are here to provide insight and knowledge into the flexible work environment that so many companies are starting to take on. Check out the below links to learn more about Accounting flex career paths, resources and ways flex can work inside your firm.
Flex Career Paths
In accounting class, most CPAs are taught the path to success is to work for the Big 4 until manager, then leave to go work for a large Fortune 500 and work your way up to become a CFO. Though that career path is incredible for a lot of people, there are a large majority of accountants who want something different out of their career and life.
Whether it means working virtually, coming into the office fewer days of the week or even working just during the busiest time of the year, there are various opportunities available to the CPA who wants a different career path.
To help spark some insight into the flex opportunities available to modern day CPAs, Flex CPAs has showcased few job postings that have been released and why they might work for your career and life.
