The ongoing development of our Chicago accounting professionals is an essential ingredient to delivering the high level of service and technical expertise that clients have come to expect. To facilitate professional growth, we developed the Selden Fox Academy. The Academy is our comprehensive, in-house training program, that provides team members with access to foundational and advanced training opportunities.
For new team members, the Academy provides the opportunity to discover our three primary service lines – audit, taxation and accounting solutions. Participants receive classroom training in addition to the opportunity to work with seasoned team members in each of these departments during the first 12 months with the firm. This opens the door to discovery, and the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to real world situations. The result is a well-rounded accountant that can address our Chicago business client needs regardless of where they arise.
Beyond accounting, we also offer training on marketing and business development. This is a critical skill that new and experienced team members need to develop and refine on an ongoing basis. Remember, it’s important to not only be technically proficient, but also have the ability to manage new business opportunities when they present themselves.
The Selden Fox Academy reflects our commitment to our team and clients. The investment in training is an important part of the firm’s successful formula. It’s also another reason why Chicago accounting professional should select Selden Fox as their next career move.
