  • Should You Be Paid for Your Internship?

    September 4, 2014
    Thanks to a 2013 court case, many unpaid interns have been suing former employers for back pay. It may be worthwhile for you to understand the basic labor laws surrounding unpaid internships at both the federal and state levels.
  • Networking Within the Classroom

    August 1, 2014
    When you miss the opportunity to talk to recruiters on campus, don’t panic or get upset. Some of the most important contacts you have are sitting next to you in class, and they may not even be accounting majors. Get to know the people you interact with on campus. They may be able to help you, and you may be able to help them.
  • The 2014 NJSCPA Convention in Review

    July 22, 2014
    As a first timer to the NJSCPA Convention & Expo in June, I was unsure of what to expect from the two-and-half-day event and what value I would get from it as a student and young professional. But it turned out to be a great opportunity to remain current on industry topics, grow personally and meet other professionals - not to mention have some fun.
I am so thankful for the New Jersey Society of CPAs and their efforts in helping me become a CPA. A few years ago I was hospitalized with a serious illness, and, while I was in recovery, the time elapsed on one of the CPA exam sections I had previously passed. I was worried about having to start from scratch after everything I had been through, so I contacted the Society to see what options, if any, were available. I was quickly informed that I could petition the State Board of Accountancy to get my time extended on the expired section, and, after much help from the amazing people at the Society, my request was granted.

I am very thankful that I was a member of the Society at the time. Seeing the effort spent to help me get my credit back was truly inspiring. Further, I was able to utilize the study tools and tips available on the Society’s website as a guide through the remaining exam sections, and today I can happily say that I am a CPA.
