In today’s job market, it seems almost impossible to get a job unless you have three to five years experience in that industry.
Is this a healthy situation? Surely the principles of accounting dont change and qualified accountants are generally reasonably intelligent and can adapt to new environs.
Is this emphasis on working in an industry in danger of encouraging group think?
I believe that companies miss out on people bringing diverse experience to their businesses and their processes being viewed through ‘fresh eyes’
Do you think that industry experience (at low to middle levels) is crucial and good for companies?
