MSCPA holds 'Next Step' workshop in Boston
The Massachusetts Society of CPAs held its annual “The Next Step” workshop for more than 70 college students across the state on March 27 in Boston.
Held at Big Four firm PwC's office, the workshop invited local college students interested in accounting to participate in panel discussions and other activities focused on their early career paths. Activities included resume preparation, interview skills and creation of a professional social media presence. Students also connected with local human resource professionals and recruiters in small groups.
“Sustaining a vibrant and diverse accounting workforce is one of the main goals of the MSCPA, and events like these expose students to what is expected in the profession and becoming a Certified Public Accountant,” stated Amy Pitter, president and CEO of MSCPA. “The profession has immense earning potential, unlimited room for growth and touches almost every type of industry. Our member firms are looking for talented professionals to fuel the CPA pipeline, and we’re excited to share these opportunities with college students across the state.”
