Why did you recently get promoted to senior accountant?

“I think that they liked the work I was doing and just taking on more responsibility the last year with working on clients. After a couple years, if they see that you’re meeting expectations, when you’re working through a job, doing all the work that they see is what they think you should be doing and maybe going a little above and beyond, I think that’s when they will take a look and promote you to the next level.”

How have you made yourself stand out in the workplace and get noticed for your work?

“Doing continuing education I think has helped. Definitely learning from the people above me. Taking on as much responsibility as I can and when I’m done with jobs, trying to get feedback from my managers and asking them, ‘What did I do well on this job? What can I improve on?’”

What is your next career goal?
