Accounting Firm Is Giving Away Paul McCartney Tickets to a Handful of Able-Bodied Auditors

This is what it’s come to:

Attention audit senior associates and managers. Connect with Lurie and receive two Paul McCartney row 12 tickets for the Thursday, May 5th concert!  — “Maybe you’ll be amazed!”

Meet with our Lurie assurance team before May 5th and then rock out with Paul McCartney of the Beatles at Target Center! Lurie will provide two floor seat concert tickets to the first five candidates that visit our firm.

FULL DISCLOSURE: Lurie is a firm partner of Going Concern’s sister site, Accountingfly, and my favorite Beatle is George.

As far as recruiting gimmicks go, I’d say this is about as big as incentive as you’ll find. Sure, some firms will pay you a monetary bonus that are worth more than a pair of tickets1 but anyone can have money. Tickets to a concert where you’re waiting around for the fourth-best Beatle to play “Hey Jude”?  Not everyone has those.

On another note — I guess this is what a talent crisis looks like. Firms are gonna do what they have to do to find talent these days. Although I gotta think that Adele would've been a better draw.
