Episode 112 – Sahand Kargosha

November 29, 2017

Sahand studies the past for better connections in the present


Sahand Kargosha really likes history. Especially United States history. In an effort to learn as much as he can, he’s read many books about the Civil War and both World Wars. He’s been doing this ever since he was little, learning how important reading was from his Mom.

In this episode, Sahand and I talk about how being a bit of a history buff has allowed him to develop some great relationships in the office – especially with a Tax Partner. This helped even before he started with EY, since his interview with a Senior Manager turned to discussing the Civil War. He likes to talk about this and finds it’s a good way to connect with others. He says he has yet to find anyone that absolutely hates history and that “…there are so many ways to bond with people – the work itself is just one of those ways.”

Sahand Kargosha is a Tax Associate with EY in Washington DC and an adjunct professor at George Mason University.

He received both his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Accounting from George Mason University.

Sahand considers this collection of Ralph Waldo Emerson works from 1905 to be one of the most interesting on his bookshelf.

He bought them in an online auction from a library for only $15!

One of Sahand’s other favorite books is by Henry Kissinger.
