Sometimes the best support a CPA candidate needs is just that - support. With all that your staff juggles day-to-day - work, family, and life - they may need extra encouragement as they pursue their CPA license. That's where a CPA liaison program can help, offering aspiring CPAs mentorship, inspiration and coaching as they prepare for each section of the Uniform CPA Examination.
To get the program off the ground, you'll want to designate a liaison who will either mentor all candidates in your firm, or who will help manage the program and oversee a team of mentors. The liaison's role can be formal or informal, depending on the needs and size of your firm.
Larger firms may create a specific process and track multiple exam candidates. A smaller firm may want to establish a CPA liaison program associated with an existing career mentoring program. Regardless of the size of your firm, the liaison program can help you connect CPA Exam candidates to individuals who can guide them through their exam journey.
