BACKGROUND
Ferris, Busscher & Zwiers has been helping businesses, organizations, and individuals with their financial affairs since 1959, when Mr. Dwight Ferris established the firm as a sole proprietorship. The firm has grown steadily since then, in response to the burgeoning business activity in West Michigan and the increasingly complex needs of its clients.

Today, we offer not only a full range of traditional accounting and auditing services, but also counsel and advice in a variety of highly specialized fields, such as tax planning, employee benefits, and management compensation. We work closely with our clients in defining their needs and internal capabilities, making adjustments, as needed, in the types of services we provide.

 

We're very sensitive to the impact of technology; not only on our profession,
but also on the manner in which our clients do business. One of our priorities
is to stay abreast of the latest technological developments, as well as those
that are driven by new laws, regulations, and governmental policies. Both our partners and our associates maintain membership in a number of professional associations, including:

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants
The Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants
The National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives

We are also a participating member of BKR International, a worldwide consortium of outstanding CPA firms and chartered accountants. By working with our BKR affiliates, we are able to provide reliable expertise and service to those clients whose operations and interests may extend well beyond the Holland area.

As a result, Ferris, Busscher & Zwiers can offer many of the advantages found in a national firm while retaining the independence, atmosphere, and personalized service that have been the hallmark of our organization since its inception.

EMPLOYMENT
At Ferris, Busscher & Zwiers we know that the best way of advancing our clients' interests is by attracting and retaining the very best professional and support people we can find. We work hard at doing so, and we're proud of what we've been able to accomplish in this respect.

By working for a smaller, growing firm, you'll have the opportunity to gain exposure to a large number of clients that are engaged in a wide variety of businesses. You'll be given diverse assignments, which will enable you to gain valuable skills in multiple areas of accounting. We'll help you reach your fullest potential – and select an area of specialization. We'll also encourage you to develop your own clientele – in order to cultivate a sense of involvement in the
firm's affairs, and establish an equity position in the firm's future.

However, a job in accounting doesn't have to consume your entire life. In fact, at Ferris, Busscher & Zwiers, we try very hard to see that it doesn't; we know that without some balance – time for one's family, friends, and avocations – it's far too easy to burn out. We believe that part of providing our clients with the best possible service requires that we maintain a comfortable, congenial working environment for all of our people – one that recognizes their commitments
and interests.

In terms of compensation and benefits, we offer very competitive salaries, paid vacations, personal time, insurance coverage, sick leave, and retirement benefits. We also defray the costs of CPE courses and dues for professional affiliations.

Ferris, Busscher & Zwiers is located in Holland, Michigan, a beautiful, small-size city on Lake Michigan's eastern shore. Holland and its surrounding environs represent one of Michigan's fastest growing areas; one which offers a unique balance of commercial, cultural and recreational activity.

Holland boasts a first-rate school system, a number of churches, and a vibrant, traditional "Main Street." It's also the home of both Hope College, and the
campuses of Davenport College and Grand Valley State University.

With its beautiful location and strong sense of community, Holland is an ideal place to live and work.
