Paying it Forward

Three aspiring students had the opportunity to see real-life accounting work at Salmon Sims Thomas’ Arlington office on November 6. The Fort Worth Chapter of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants initiated the ‘job shadow’ day to set expectations about the benefits and challenges of a career in accounting. Becky DaVee and Eileen Keller provided an office tour, demonstrated the Intacct tool that monitors client activities, and then traveled to the Fort Worth Chapter training facility to answer questions as part of a panel of CPAs.

Becky DaVee said, “It was a great day to encourage interest in accounting, and to be encouraged by the quality of students interested in joining the field.”
