What’s the most rewarding thing about working with Stern Cohen?

I can’t say I started my career thinking: “I want to be an Accounting Marketer!” but I love the huge challenge it presents due to the sheer number of  accounting firms in the GTA.   I’ve been able to demonstrate a pretty significant ROI for my marketing efforts and that is truly rewarding. It’s a never ending quest for SEO dominance!

What’s different about Stern Cohen?

We put our clients first and as a result we are highly regarded in the industry.  We’re a friendly and diverse group of dedicated people always willing to lend a hand – I love that! And we have Fridays off, with pay, in August. Where else can you find these perks?!
