The article presents information related to networking for certified public accountants. Professionals who do a good job at networking are generally better informed and more knowledgeable of their professional environment than non-networking counterparts.

Effective networking gives public accountants an idea of their own worth in the market, what opportunities exist and who makes decisions regarding hiring. Networking should be embraced for the value it brings to the individual in assessing the market and developing a career path.
