Illinois CPA Society Launches New Site for Students

Students interested in a career in accounting can find all the answers they need with just one click of the mouse. The Illinois CPA Society announces the launch of www.FutureCPA.org, the exciting new website that is devoted to providing students of all ages with valuable resources and the latest accounting career information.

Students can reference information on scholarships, loans and grants, and review a list of two-and four-year Illinois colleges and universities that offer accounting programs. They can also learn what it means to be a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and get an inside look at the CPA's role within public accounting firms, various types of business and industries, the government sector and educational institutions. Students can access information on job fairs, internships and the earning potential of today's CPAs. Resume writing skills, interview tips and job postings can also be found on the site.

Visitors of FutureCPA.org can find out how to join student associations that provide accounting experience and networking opportunities with peers and potential employers. Students can also join the Illinois CPA Society as a Student Affiliate Member for only $10. A Student Affiliate Membership will help them stay on top of the latest issues in the accounting industry and provide them with a chance to interact with accounting professionals.

The Illinois CPA Society encourages students of all ages to visit www.FutureCPA.org today and realize the exciting opportunities, challenges, and rewards the CPA profession has to offer.
