Ask Aimee – the AAT career coach

aat comment

One of the things our Facebook page has taught us at AAT is that with so much competition for accountancy jobs, sometimes people need a little help. So we’ve acted on that and started working with recruitment consultant Aimee Bateman.

Aimee’s an experienced recruiter and personal branding expert. She runs her own recruitment consultancy, Bateman Associates, and maintains the engaging online video channel Aimee also has numerous appearances as an employment expert on BBC TV to her credit. In short: she knows her stuff.

Aimee is genuinely passionate about helping people into work. She’s recruited for some of the top financial firms in the UK, and her experience has taught her exactly what employers look for when it comes to job applications. She has a wealth of tips to help you stand out from the crowd, and she can’t wait to share them with you.

So how do you Ask Aimee? As she says in her introductory video below, you can submit your question to Aimee in one of these ways:

Tweet AAT using the hashtag #AskAATAimee

– Leave a question under one of her videos on AAT’s Facebook page

– Leave a question in the Ask Aimee thread on AAT’s discussion forums

– Leave a comment under one of her videos on the AAT career coach YouTube channel

(You can also leave a comment at the end of this article, if you like.)

At the end of each week Aimee will shoot a new video answering the most popular/interesting questions submitted by you. (Aimee only has so many hours in the day, so she’ll only be able to answer a couple of questions per video.)

Aimee’s first video of answers was in response to questions submitted on Facebook – and as you can see she had plenty to choose from:
