Start Here Magazine Issue 3

The third issue of Start Here Magazine details CPAs’ roles in the fashion industry, working with social media sites and at companies such as Harley-Davidson. An interview with Michael Boatman, who plays accountant Stanley Babson on HBO’s "Arli$$," gives a glimpse of what it’s like to play a CPA. Best-selling author James Surowiecki provides insight on why guesswork and teamwork can yield accurate results – and how corporations can apply this logic. A feature story about CPAs sitting down and talking finances with soldiers provides a unique look about the costs of being in the military. Brief case studies of cool accounting courses at the University of La Verne and the University of Mary Washington are included, as well as tips for starting a career in accounting.
