The Linkedin Group for eTaxJobs will pass the 10,000 members mark this month.
Chris Bale commented: “Although traffic from Linkedin to eTaxJobs is pretty minimal, it is a useful tool with which to communicate with a proportion of the tax professionals that use our site. As a platform it is trusted by people within the tax profession and it is therefore important that we engage with our users via this medium.
I am delighted that we have grown to 10,000 members. Every day we decline more people that we accept, because we only allow tax professionals with a visible and detailed career profile to join. So, whilst our size may be smaller than other tax groups on Linkedin, our membership is thoroughly vetted to ensure that no-one is subjected to spam or unsolicited approaches.”
