Exit Edward The Accountant

The early departure of Edward Hunter (the accountant) from episode one of The Apprentice may, on the face of it, disappoint those in the profession.

However, it should be noted that Edward (for reasons best known to himself) neither used any of his accounting skills, nor did he profess any "regard" or "self esteem" for being an accountant.

Not everyone is suited to the profession.

However, to reject the skills and knowledge garnered from years' of hard work and exams is surely akin to throwing the baby out with the bath water?

Like it or loath it, if you have managed to qualify as an accountant then use those skills and knowledge to your best advantage.

  1. Ken,

    I agree that it's a waste. At least he didn't claim to be a brand like one of his predecessors!

    Do you know who he trained with? They are trying to work it out on AWeb.
