Since September 2015, Tim Salvesen has worked as the vice president and corporate controller at GridLiance, a company based in Chicago, Illinois. Tim Salvesen is also a licensed CPA and member of the Illinois CPA Society (ICPAS).
The ICPAS is now ramping up for next year’s Jumpstart to Accounting, a program that introduces students to accounting. Scheduled for April 21, 2017, Jumpstart to Accounting is a half-day interactive event that will be held at the ICPAS offices in Chicago.
The program is designed to teach students the benefits of gaining a CPA license and how to transition into a professional role. Students will also get to share their ideas, learn from industry professionals, and visit real-world accounting firms.
Scott Steffens, the ICPAS board chair, called the event, “a risk-free environment to ask questions in a setting that’s not like a job interview.” To learn more about the ICPAS or 2017’s Jumpstart to Accounting, visit icpas.org.
