prestigious accounting firm

Mary had worked as an accountant for Andrew Arthurson, a once prestigious accounting firm, for over 20 years before she was laid off after the firm suffered a great loss of clients due to a scandal. Fifty-year-old Mary applies for a position as an accountant at Knott Hower Phault, an accounting firm with 25 employees in Chicago, Illinois. Thirty-eight-year-old senior partner Dan Knott is impressed by Mary’s credentials and understands that Mary had no involvement in the Arthurson scandal. Still, he fears that Mary’s years of experience make her over qualified for the accountant position at his firm. Dan thinks that a professional at Mary’s stage would not care to take direction from him or his partners, who are either Dan’s age or younger. What advice would you give Dan?
