Let me introduce Eva Rosenberg, Tax Mama. I’ve known Eva more than a few years, and she’s a spectacular individual. Brilliant. Sassy. Savvy. Effervescent. And then some. Today she wrote about the focus we put on hiring people with degrees, and I thought it would be interesting. And now: here’s Eva.
This morning I was corresponding with a tax professional who’s faced some resistance by the folks at Robert Half because he doesn’t have a college degree. No doubt Half must adhere to THE highest standards in the land. (They are a pretty good firm, in general.) But when you come across a candidate like this individual – with over a decade of solid tax experience, a great attitude, and a capacity for finding errors that might save a firm from lawsuits or sanctions…headhunters need to have the sense to make an exception.
