Was reached out to by recruiter for a job I found interesting, have made an effort to keep in regular contact (every 3-4 months) so that I know what’s coming their way/what skills she thinks companies are looking for. I spend time working on those skills I have gaps in on the side

First year here as a general staff accountant. Midsize. Been asking scheduling for work but only managed to get 10 hours of billable work last week doing a couple 1040s... I also ask around yet everyone says they’re fine. It’s still considered busy season here since I’m at midsize and it feels wrong not hitting atleast 40 billable hours. It would suck if I got laid off cause of it. 🥴

Any diplomatic tips to get interns/juniors to work faster? Without having ever experienced the hectic nature of being in the office, ours seem to be working at a snail’s pace (3 billable hours to copy 4 blogs over to a different platform? With no SEO or image research? Dream on... 🐌) and considering it to be working under pressure. I’m not expecting the world from them and understand it’s a learning experience... but also want them to be working faster to be able to take more on. Unreasonable?
