Eric Xiao is a partner with Ernst & Young's Transaction Tax practice.  Eric has extensive experience in providing income tax advice to Canadian and multinational organizations.  He is also the president of CPAC, a non-profit organization that focuses on assisting internationally trained Canadian professionals.

In this interview, Eric shares his unique career path as the first immigrant from China to become a partner with E&Y Canada.  Eric came to Canada about 30 years ago and has progressed his career from a controller at a small Toronto-based company to an auditor at Ernst & Young to now a partner of the E&Y’s Transaction Tax practice.

During this podcast, Eric provides candid career advice to cross-cultural professionals.  Here are some highlights:

  • Look for longer-term career growth opportunities vs. short-term financial goal.
  • Strong technical background is just a starting point - always work at the highest level of integrity and always do the right things for your organization and your clients.
  • Getting out of your comfort zone - shift in & out from your comfort zone to learn new skills.
  • Give back to the community.
