As you know, the three professional accounting bodies in BC are working together to merge under the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. Similar progress is underway in most provinces across the country as well. These will be exciting times in the accounting profession as the best practices of each body come together under one powerhouse designation. Expanding the professional development and career opportunities for you will be a central driving force behind the evolution of the new CPA designation.
The time has now come for our little CareerView blog to pack up and move to its new home under the CPA banner. While the address may be new, you can still look forward to the same school-to-career transition tips that have been our focus during the past few years.
The CGA CareerView blog was born in the early days of 2011 as a medium to answer student questions on career tips and how to land that first job, and in doing so we hoped a weekly blog might provide helpful advice to a wider audience. To be honest with you I wondered if we would have enough ideas to fulfill our commitment to post each week. Well, it has been two-and-a-half years and today is our 115th post. And there is no shortage of ideas for future posts as well.
In those first few days, we were only getting a few views per day. Now we are constantly averaging over 70 views per day. In fact we are just shy of the 50,000 total views milestone and have had viewers from 115 countries.
Stay tuned at our new location and keep reading at blog.goCPAbc.ca. There’s plenty more to come and we look forward to continuing to share our knowledge in the hope of helping you in your career development.
