DALLAS (Nov. 1, 2023) – Texas Society of CPAs (TXCPA) is excited to announce our collaboration with the American Institute of CPAs and fellow state CPA societies throughout the U.S. for a unique career awareness event aimed at inspiring and educating students about career opportunities in accounting. Accounting Opportunities Month will bring Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) into middle school, high school and college classrooms to share their career journeys, debunk common myths, and provide valuable insights into the accounting profession.

Accounting is more than just numbers; it’s about problem-solving, decision-making, and contributing to the financial well-being of individuals and organizations. This outreach aims to motivate students of all ages to explore the rewarding path of becoming a CPA.
What to Expect:
- Engaging Presentations: Skilled CPAs from various backgrounds and experiences will visit classrooms to share their personal journeys and experiences. They will discuss the diverse career opportunities within the field and provide valuable insights into the education and training required to become a CPA.
- Interactive Q&As: Students will have the opportunity to ask questions, get firsthand advice, and learn about the different areas of specialization within accounting.
- Career Myth-Busting: CPAs will debunk common myths about accounting, such as it being boring or monotonous, and will illustrate the dynamic and evolving nature of the profession.
- Networking Opportunities: Students will have the chance to connect with professionals who can provide guidance and advice on pursuing an accounting career.
