Beech Valley’s Vetting Process
Beech Valley has an efficient, systematic approach to vetting the top 2% of CPA freelance talent.
Skills and experience
Every CPA that applies to our network is evaluated based on their prior skills and experience, as indicated on their resume or through client feedback obtained from previous Beech Valley project work. We primarily work with CPAs who have prior experience in public accounting and / or consulting.
Interview – Communication skills
Every CPA who passes the Skills and Experience assessment is interviewed by a Beech Valley team member. CPAs are rated internally on their communication skills and personality.
Reliability – Responsiveness and reference checks
Every CPA who passes the interview provides references. Candidates are rated not only on the responses provided by references (which are almost always positive!), but also on the quality of references provided.
Candidates who provide references that were direct supervisors at recent positions score highly in this assessment.
Testing – Aptitude and Personality Skills
Candidates who passed the previous sections are requested to take Aptitude and Personality tests.
The tests utilized by Beech Valley are an objective measure of expected performance, and applicants who score well on both tests tend to be adaptable and able to rapidly pick up new processes, systems, and challenges.
