Pam Weaver, Lecturer in Accounting and Director of the MSAT Program, Department of Accounting and Taxation in the Barney School of Business published an article, "Are New Accounting Hires Equipped to Meet Employers’ Expectations?" in the November/December 2013 issue of Connecticut CPA. Connecticut CPA is distributed to over 6,000 individuals who are members or affiliates of the Connecticut Society of CPAS (CTCPA) and is also available digitally on the CTCPA website http://www.ctcpas.org/uniflip/ND2013/index.html, page 12-14. Pam and her co-author, Marie Kulesza, worked with the CTCPA to conduct a survey on what ancillary skills employers expect from new accounting hires in addition to the essential technical skills. Problem Solving, Critical/Strategic Thinking, Time Management, Memos & Writing, and Intermediate/Advanced Excel skills topped the list. The full layman’s report on the survey appears on the CTCPA website.
