How to Address Strong Demand in Accounting and Finance

Recruiters and the Compendium Conundrum…

At the risk of offending about 97.2% of corporate recruiters in the industry – It’s time I raised what I believe to be a very  important issue.  I’m all about breaking the stereotype, promoting a unique personal brand and offering a point of difference….
