Back to High School to Recruit Accounting Majors
The Big 5 are arriving in droves, and this time they have more than promises of employment. They have incentives like scholarships and internships to entice future accountants to rise to the top.
For example, PricewaterhouseCoopers  will send recruiters to about 3,000 high schools this year, and are closely looking to see whether middle schools also should be covered.
The AICPA  is involved as well, with programs for the classroom that make accounting 'fun' for anyone involved. One section tells how forensic accounting even helped capture Al Capone.
