KEY is always searching for the best and brightest accounting candidates.  In this regard, we hire college graduates who hold a degree in accounting or other business-related fields from accredited 4-year colleges or universities.  When evaluating a prospective employee, we consider college course concentration in accounting and related business courses, work experience, and personal interests.  The ideal candidate should possess the appropriate characteristics to perform competently, a high level of intelligence, motivation, and aptitude.


My experience at KEY has been excellent.  Having spent over six years at a larger regional accounting firm, I was limited on what I was allowed to learn. Upon arriving at Key & Associates, P.C., I was afforded the opportunity to work on a variety of engagements, such as Overhead Rate Audits, Reviews, Compilations and Government Contracts.  More importantly, in addition to the experience that I gained, is the fact that employee opinions are welcomed, and if they assist the company with becoming a more effective and efficient organization, they are implemented by the owner.  I am fortunate to have transitioned to Key & Associates because I was welcomed with open arms and provided an opportunity to grow and input ideas to assist the firm with reaching their goals.
