New Accountant Magazine, a trusted professional journal for college accounting students since 1985, has released its latest issue, available both in print and online.

This issue of New Accountant marks the beginning of a new series of articles from experts on the importance of taking the CPA Exam. A CPA certification carries tremendous prestige across the globe with accounting professionals encouraging students about the importance of taking the exam.

“A Higher CPA Salary Isn’t the Only Benefit of Taking the CPA Exam,” written by Bill Driscoll, District President of Accountemps, kicks off this series. It highlights the many reasons why taking the CPA Exam is beneficial, and encourages accounting students to take advantage of their academic resources and start working towards the exam now. “Earning your CPA certification is one of the best ways to get ahead in your accounting career,” Driscoll writes. The certification allows for “greater work and advancement opportunities” and gaining “the respect of your colleagues,” as well as a higher salary.

The featured cover story is “Transforming Today’s High Performers Into Tomorrow’s Leaders: The WeiserMazars Way!”, written by Chris Roberts, Director of Human Resources, Long Island Practice. The story showcases the opportunities that WeiserMazars offers CPAs to advance their professional growth, such as an international mobility program and the WeiserMazars Leadership Academy (WLMA). As Roberts writes, “There has never been a more exciting time to join the accounting profession!”
