Calling all young CPAs!

We've been lucky to draw a diverse crew of contributors to AccountingTomorrow, which is exactly what we set out to do. But we're not done. We still need you and we still need more.

Jeff Crosley, son of esteemed consultant Gale Crosley, wrote a compelling piece about what it takes to create a stellar Web site. Rule No. 1? Avoid chest-thumping about your services. Just show exactly what your practice can do for clients. Jessica Allen, a young Certified Management Accountant, offered tips on how to own your career, such as developing your own job description, while Jennifer Estrella, a first-generation college grad, shared her journey and excitement as she heads to Ernst & Young as an associate in its audit practice in the fall.

Want more of Accounting Tomorrow? Here's a roundup of other recent posts featured on the site:

* Partners, staff and family of Philadelphia-based Briggs, Bunting & Dougherty traveled to Eastern Kentucky to volunteer in the area's impoverished counties - a trip that was challenging, rewarding and humbling for those involved.

* Discussion boards are a breeding ground for stereotypes. Take the question we found posted by a college student on www.grumpy­ "Would you choose marketing or accounting as a major?" The question created a thread of comments that unfortunately perpetuated the type of stereotypes that we at Accounting Tomorrow try to dispel.

* A new workplace survey revealed that 54 percent of employed Americans plan to look for a new job once the economy rebounds, including 71 percent of Gen Yers.
