Welcome. Or, welcome back. Though this is the fourth issue of The Business of Valuation, we’re connecting with new readers every time.

The big news is our BV Employee Salary Survey, the first ever in the BV industry. Read more about it and take time to participate.

In this issue, two separate articles give you a different perspective on the employee hiring process. One addresses an easily corrected mistake that can occur during the interview process. The other offers a suggestion for developing your own pre-employment test. Finally, we continue with Part 2 of the article in our July issue about how a small-shop practitioner can realize the potential for SFAS 141/142 work.

As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions for information that would be useful in your practice.
