You Just Can't Find Good Help Anymore

How hard is it for corporate controllers to fill entry-level slots in their departments these days? Here's an anecdote from the trenches - in Hollywood.

Alexander Georgiev, controller at CBS Studio Center in Studio City, Calif., is finding it ever harder to find good help. In a recent issue of California CPA, the magazine of the California Society of CPAs, he was quoted saying:

The pool of people we choose from is getting smaller and it’s getting harder to fill low-level positions. Before, we’d throw an ad in the paper that would say 'CBS,' and people jumped on it, which left us with real good choices. I had to pay recruiters for my last two AP clerks, which are basic, entry-level positions.

You are looking at the wrong places. You are looking for other people to solve your problem.
