Our Process

i
1) Onboarding

It all starts with your expression of interest. We then have a casual phone interview to get to know you and let you know more about the program, and learn about you. This is a great time to ask questions and understand what you need to do to join the program.

Z
2) Validation

We run follow up interviews and testing to assess you on: Skill set, Experience, Software, Personality, and your own Business preferences.  Depending on where you want to go and the work you want to do, the aptitude testing will vary.
If you own a firm of multiple bookkeepers and want to be considered, all bookkeepers are tested, not just you.

We are looking at you as though we were hiring you for our own accounting firm.

3) New Clients

When we are contacted by clients, all bookkeepers in our network are reviewed and then narrowed down for final skills testing specific to the hiring business. 

The top 5 bookkeepers will be approached and presented with details regarding the type of business and expectations, no names will be given.  

If, as the bookkeeper, you feel this could be a fit for you, then we finalize what information is needed for the client, covering all qualifiers, and at least 2, of the top 5 bookkeepers for this business, will be presented to the client for them to conduct final interviews for fit.

Frequently Asked Questions

u

What qualifications do I need to join the talent pool and be considered for businesses that need a bookkeeper?

We deep dive into all of your skills and expertise from the level of your accounting knowledge to software you work with, and more. Depending on the clients you want to work with and the way you want to work, you will be required to take competences tests and complete questionnaires so we have a full overview of you, and your abilities. No matter your level, you can join the pool and we can assist you in getting the qualifications you need to get the clients you want.

u

Is there any guarantee in getting new clients by joining your talent pool?

No, there isn’t because that isn’t the purpose of the program. We want businesses to understand what they need and we find them the bookkeeper that can provide the skills and expertise to meet those needs. We can’t guarantee we’ll find you a client, but we will guarantee that you are considered every single time a client looks for a new bookkeeper with us. The bookkeepers we partner with the businesses are the best fit for them, not just any fit.
u

Do I have to have gone to school for bookkeeping to be considered?

Not all skills are learned in a classroom, but proper education is essential. All bookkeepers need to maintain their skill sets through practical upgrades and ongoing self improvement and continuing education. Though many of us can “learn on our feet”, there are accounting and bookkeeping concepts that require some type of formal education. If you’re worried you don’t have enough or could use a boost, we’ve partnered with organizations that offer bookkeeping, accounting and taxation education to get you where you want to be.
u

Is it really free to join? There must be some hidden costs.

Joining is free, but you have to put in the work and effort to be fully onboarded. We are investing in you, to get you onboarded, as a bookkeeper that we could pair with a business that appreciates your value and what you can bring to their business. Depending upon the contracts or additional services you’re considering through us, other fees could apply, but never will there be a cost to join the talent pool, or to be considered for a match with a business.
