Our Tax Law Society’s Founding President Jun Qiu joined a talk with ABA Legal Career Central and Kelly Phillips Erb, a tax attorney, teacher, writer, and Senior Editor for Forbes, at #LegalCareerChat on Monday, April 10.
Kelly received her JD and LL.M in Taxation from Temple University School of Law in Philadelphia and started blogging about tax law on www.taxgirl.com. Since then, she has written on tax law for Reuters, Time, and AOL’s WalletPop, and her ability to explain taxes in plain English was tapped by Esquire, National Public Radio’s Marketplace, CBS Radio’s Marketwatch, Inc., and the Philadelphia Inquirer. She was interviewed in a documentary movie, An Inconvenient Tax, and has written two books: Ask the TaxGirl: Everything Parents Should Know About Filing Taxes and Home, Sweet Rental: Busting The Hype Of Homeownership, together with Forbes where she is now a Senior Editor.
The one-hour talk covered Kelly’s career path, useful skills to learn and develop, good way to use social media, etc. See below for the conversation transcript and how our society’s name got out there!
