Women (and Men) In Accounting – Be Confident!

“One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence is preparation.” – Arthur Ashe

I have observed that many women, working in the accounting profession, say a lot with their body language. Many times they seem to withdraw, make themselves smaller, cross arms and legs signifying that they are shutting people out.

Here are some wonderful tips from Amy Cuddy to help females with job interviews. I think these tips can help women in accounting – no matter what the situation, as they build their careers.

I also believe these video tips apply to men in accounting. I know many male CPAs who do not always show self-confidence via their body language. My message to PEOPLE in accounting – you are powerful!
