Key to a Successful Career: Lifelong Education
This Way to CPA recently launched a new blogging feature on the community section of their website. Blog posts cover a range of topics, including Careers and Internships, CPA Exam and Licensure, and College and Grad School and are authored by CPAs from the AICPA’s Student Recruitment Committee. The latest post analyzes the importance of committing to lifelong learning. Not just through CPE, as CPAs and other professionals are required to complete, but by broadening your horizons. The author, Brian Beckett, CPA, an investment accounting analyst and MBA student, explains that even just reading The Wall Street Journal or CPA Letter Daily, requires your brain to think in different ways, keeping you on your toes. Lifelong learning is also the gateway to a successful career. The information, Brian explains, you gain from learning outside your day-to-day business could come in handy in future business decisions.
