New and Young Professionals Present
`College Month'
Accounting: The Next Generation
This October, members of the New and Young Professionals
Cabinet organized "College Month," a series of visits to
Connecticut colleges to give students a glimpse into life as
a young accountant. Cabinet members and their colleagues,
divided into teams of three or four, served as panelists at
accounting club meetings, answering questions about
careers in public and private accounting, the ins and outs of
taking the CPA Exam, how to manage challenges on the
road to becoming a CPA, and much more.
