Let's Get Started

A career in accounting likely offers many more career paths and opportunities than your students realize. Accounting is one of the most stereotyped professions out there. It’s obvious that there are not only a lot of misconceptions but also a general lack of knowledge about what CPAs actually do. The more your students know about where a career in accounting could take them – and how to get there – the more likely they’ll be to explore it as a career option.

This in-class or take-home exercise asks students to exploring StartHereGoPlaces.com then answer questions on a worksheet based on what they learned from the website. It’s a great introduction to the field of accounting and what it has to offer as a future career.
