The California Board of Accountancy Wants You to Facebook Them Your CPA Exam Worries

You're a busy CPA exam candidate with no time to read the Candidate Handbook or use Google to get the answers you seek. What do you do? Get on Facebook and holla at your friendly local Board of Accountancy, natch.

 

 

 

This is actually a pretty cool idea. The California Board of Accountancy has always been fairly easy to get in contact with if you have questions, especially considering the ridiculous number of CPA exam candidates the state has at any given time, but now it's even easier to ask a quick question without — gasp — picking up a phone.

I hope more states consider similar social media tactics to provide candidates in their state direct access to the board. Even if it's only for an hour, it sure beats clueless candidates asking random strangers on Reddit questions they should be asking of the state board.
