Busy Season is Over!

Finally, my nth busy season is officially over!  If you're wondering about the 'nth', actually, I lost count of how many busy seasons I’ve gone through since I became an auditor right after my university days. 

This busy season was extra-challenging for me.  I actually thought I would skip this one out.  For those who could remember my post 8 months ago, I wrote about closing my own firm.  Back then, I thought I would try my hand on another career, something different from accounting or auditing.  I didn’t really think that was the end of my accounting career though but I was willing to try other things.

Well, I did try another path – online jobs such as writing and such - but I only lasted for 4 months!  For one, I wasn’t earning enough.  For another, I wasn’t really cut out working only 4 to 5 hours a day.  Call me a workaholic but I was missing the time when I worked for 8 hours a day or even more.

So what did I do?  Well, I went back and worked with my former employer (a big accounting firm).  It was rather easy or to be more precise, going back to the firm was an easy enough thing to do.  They welcomed me with open arms.  They even gave me my old position (I previously resigned when I was in the Manager 2 level) back.

What was difficult was the fact that I’ve been gone for more than 4 years so I had to make a lot of adjustments.  Let me tell you, 4 years is a long time to be away from an accounting firm, especially a big one or even a mid-sized firm because a lot can happen during those 4 years. Add to this is the fact that it was right smack in the middle of the busy season when they took me back in and what do you get?

Gone for 4 years + went back middle of the busy season = one heck of a quick adjustment period!!!

Thank goodness they only gave me a few clients.  Mind you, these were not the clients I handled before, these were new ones.  But since they were not that complicated and they were not really big ones, hey, I should count my blessings right?  But that doesn’t mean I got off easy.  I still have to do overtime work, late night (or early morning) work, week-end work, etc., etc.  I still had to deal with my client’s accounting staff (there are some who are really hard to deal with) and, sometimes, difficult juniors.  So it’s the same-old, same-old thing again.

So now what’s next?  Well, I still have a lot more things to catch up with.  Still have to deal with the usual after-busy season work like staff evaluations, filing of working papers, planning for the next busy season, etc.  Hope I get to write more about it in the future.  And yes, I do plan to write more about this during my next blog posts.  So bye for now and see you on my next post!
