Happy Holidays and a Prosperous 2017! Reflections on Work, Career and Roles


I wanted to take a moment to say Happy Holidays! I know a lot of people this year collectively feel that 2016 can’t be over soon enough.  Well we have one more week to go and this is the time to start thinking about what you need to do to have a productive new year!

But first we have to look back to think about what we want to change moving forward. This includes your own personal reflection on what your hits and misses have been in your current role.  There are many people who will have an official performance review that will also reflect their yearend bonus. Although not everyone will have a chance to sit down and speak to their current employer about what they have done this year, it’s still important to do your own personal reflection. This will keep you interested in your work, gives you confidence on the things you felt you did well in and gives you something to work on in the new year.  This article will give you some insight on how to prepare for a conversation with your employer and yourself.

In the age of information literally at your fingertips there are a lot of industry leaders out there to guide you on your job search.  I tend to follow Liz Ryan who is a contributor for Forbes Magazine. I don’t always agree with her advice but she does bring to light some interesting work place/job search inquiries that I often don’t see anywhere else. If you decide to follow her or anyone else I think it’s important in any job search to hear the insights of the interview process and how to get yourself prepared for any new potential opportunities.

This year in our New York Office at Creative Financial Staffing, we have been so fortunate to see different opportunities open to us by a variety of clients.  We have helped these companies find strong top talent on both the permanent and temporary side. For that I am grateful that we have had a chance to work with so many hiring managers and connected them with the best candidates for their roles.  I felt so fortunate to everyone who have given us a chance to help them and for that I want to say thank you!

If you are in need off any current staff in your Accounting/Finance department on either the temporary or permanent side, please feel free to reach out to me. I would be happy to discuss how our company can help you see the top talent in the New York City marketplace. I am offering on the temporary side the first 8 hours free! To find out more details on this offer please feel free to reach out to me at 646.661.2226 or email

Just because the year is ending doesn’t mean we don’t have more current needs or more to come.  Below are the roles we are currently working on. If you feel you would be a great fit or would like to recommend someone who is, please feel free to reach out.
