Now Available: The Brilliant™ Q4 2017 Accounting, Finance & IT Hiring Forecast!

Q4 is here and Brilliant wants you to be prepared! Brilliant recently released the Q4 2017 Accounting, Finance and Information Technology Hiring Forecast. This is a quarterly study, led by Brilliant and Dr. Richard Curtin, a statistician at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to determine the hiring trends and business factors affecting accounting, finance and IT professionals in the coming quarter. The feedback Brilliant receives for the Hiring Forecast comes from clients of companies we are currently working with or clients we are in contact with. As an external employee of Brilliant, this hiring forecast is great insight for the market trends for the end of the year. Some of the highlights we found from the hiring forecast were:

  • 38 percent of companies have open positions in accounting and finance
  • 33 percent of companies plan to hire ASAP for accounting and finance

Candidate(s) of the Month!

When I was looking at who we should highlight for this upcoming month, it was a tough decision. We have had a lot of great external colleagues over the last year. The Brilliant staff enjoys working with each of you! This month I thought we would give a special shout out to our colleagues who have been working on assignments with us for over a year! This is a huge accomplishment. All of their hard work has led to their roles being extended and having gained the respect and trust of the companies they work for. We appreciate your dedication to the Brilliant team. Please make sure to look in your mailbox in the next week for a special thank you gift!

The Brilliant webinar series airs every other month and covers topics recommended by our job seekers! One of our most popular videos that aired a couple months ago was on Networking. Networking can be uncomfortable, there is no doubt about that! If you prepare yourself before and review the do’s and don’ts of Networking you should feel more confident. Below is a link to “Working the Room: Networking” webinar presented by me (Nicole Morande).
