“The one piece of advice I would give to young CPAs entering the workforce would be to strengthen your social networks. All the people that you went to school with—connect with them on LinkedIn. Go to networking events. Get involved in charitable causes. The ability to generate business through your network is absolutely critical and will set you apart from the rest of the crowd.”
These thoughts from Philip Whitman, CPA, President of Whitman Business Advisors LLC. “The Future of the Accounting Profession and the Value of the CPA” Published in the August 2014 CPA Journal.
