The Benefits of Working With an AAFA Affiliate

October 29, 2019


Whether you are on the job market or looking to fill a position, the market is saturated with tools to “help” you. This doesn't mean the process has gotten any easier, as commercial sites often bombard you with resumes and job positions, most of which don’t apply. Fortunately, there are people who believe in doing things a little differently. The American Association of Accounting and Finance (AAFA) is a consortium of boutique finance and accounting search firms located across the United States and Canada. Turn2Partners and other AAFA affiliates believe in organically matching candidates to their ideal jobs and establishing lasting relationships with clients, as well as sharing ideas and matching clients with partner firms to form a collective reach across North America. Below are a few reasons why you should consider an AAFA affiliate for your next search:

The Recruiter Next Door

National recruiters often work remotely, trying to fill positions on the East Coast from across the country. Google searches and statistics can’t compete with local knowledge and the experience of living and working in the desired city. Turn2Partners and other AAFA affiliates are local, experienced recruiters dedicated to making a quality placement. Regional talent is the key to unlocking lasting placements, and recruiters who are familiar with the specific city and its needs are the first step to finding the perfect match.

Prioritizing Quality

Throwing candidates against the wall until one sticks is not a solid methodology. We live by the golden rule, recruit others as you would want to be recruited. This means that AAFA affiliates take the time to ensure both the candidate and the company are a solid match. After a thorough vetting and interview process, we select only the best matches for the interview. We believe that treating both parties with respect creates lasting connections and a positive experience.

A National Reach

AAFA has affiliates around the country. With 40+ associated firms across the U.S. and Canada, there is an affiliate near you. Turn2Partners is proud to represent Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia, and in doing so uphold the AAFA tradition of honest and open recruiting that focuses on our candidates and clients. With such a large network, it is easy to find a local AAFA affiliated firm that will help you fill your next position. Using recruiters that have lived and worked in the finance and accounting industry provides the skilled connections and the knowledge you need to find your company’s perfect placement.

Work With The Best

Turn2Partners partnered with AAFA because they shared our foundational values: that quality recruiting starts with treating your customers, candidates, and employees like you would want to be treated. We stand behind our process and are proud of our results. So when you call us up, or any AAFA affiliate, you won’t get a robot, but a trusted member of our team. We keep a small, dedicated staff that wants to get to know you and find your best possible placement.
