Dr. Scott Dell with Francis Marion University in South Carolina joined us for this episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast. Everyone says they want “variety” in their careers, but I will challenge you to find a career with more variety than Scott’s. In this episode we touch on entrepreneurship in many, many industries, public accounting, teaching, and even a little industry accounting as well. Dr. Dell started his career in public accounting, but quickly realized that he wanted something different. Fast forward a few years and he was well into his entrepreneurial journey. Scott’s background is so diverse that I’m sure we missed a few things, but his business endeavors include training in the IT space, a cheesecake restaurant, and owning a Dish Network sales company to name just a few. However, one theme that runs through all of it is that he enjoys teaching. He started as an adjunct professor many years ago and has continued to enjoy teaching throughout his career. He has been the Accounting Program Director for another university in the past, and most recently had joined Francis Marion University as an accounting professor in 2019. A few of Dr. Dell’s more recent endeavors include… Joining the founder of Sylvan Learning Centers as a partner in a new venture helping job seekers make a “killer” first impression when asked the question “Tell me about yourself”: www.IntroEDGE.com A new start-up venture in the job search space: MyCareerOpportunity.com A new book, “Your Complete Guide to Succeeding With LinkedIn”.
