Q&A WITH LINDA TICE
How long have you worked in accounting, finance, and/or tech? Recruiting?
I began my career in public accounting at Arthur Andersen as an auditor and worked in audit for 2 years before transitioning into recruiting. Today I have over 13 years of recruiting and executive search experience.
How were you introduced to the recruiting industry?
Like many of my colleagues here at the DeWinter Group, I fell into the business while working in public accounting.
Why do you look forward to working in accounting, finance or tech talent acquisition?
I truly enjoy and have enjoyed recruiting financial leaders (CFOs, controllers, head of FP&A, tax). Recruiting is an extremely rewarding profession. Not only are you trusted to assist companies with scaling their workforce or identifying leaders to drive a company forward, but you also have the opportunity to assist job seekers with identifying career opportunities which align with their aspirations.
If you were to provide advice to peers in accounting, finance, or tech seeking to develop their careers, what would it be?
Find a mentor and find a career you are passionate about. Be open to conversations with recruiters along the way, as well. They are crucial to augmenting your job search and serve as one additional resource working in your favor.
How did you first learn about the DeWinter Group?
I was introduced to the DeWinter Group by Talent Partner at a Bay Area VC firm.
