Your First Year in Public Accounting: Making a Smooth Transition

Your first year as a public accountant will be a time of discovery and adjustment. You’ll get to know people of different ages and backgrounds. You’ll learn how an accounting firm works and where you fit in. You’ll learn a great deal about your chosen career – and about yourself.

No doubt, you’ll someday look back fondly on that first year as a time when you made new friendships and took the big step from student to professional. But like any new job, your first year of public accountancy can be daunting. That’s why Margolin, Winer & Evens has a Buddy System – pairing you up with a seasoned pro who can answer your questions and help you navigate your new career.

You’ll be in touch with your Buddy weeks before your first day on the job. Your Buddy will be there for you during your first tax season, when it really helps to have a veteran of the profession to turn to for advice.

Along the same lines, MWE maintains a rotating manager system, with two people at the managerial level at any given time designated to answer your questions. It’s a great source of direct, practical information, and also helps our new associates get to know people at the management level. Training programs like the mock audit and tax return make it much easier to tackle the real thing when the time comes.

MWE takes pride in helping new employees make a smooth transition. Before you know it, you’ll be a seasoned pro yourself.
