Week Two — SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE — Tax Symposium and MORE job opportunities

Weekly Announcement
1.  BAP / ALL Accounting Students — Tax Symposium — MU Ballroom, 6-7:30pm — See attached flyer
Oregon State University
Tax Careers Symposium
January 14, 2015

Objective:
To increase the exposure of students to taxation as a viable career path within the accounting profession and inform students about some of the various career opportunities in taxation.  Hopefully, this event will help to cast careers in taxation in a positive light and move students away from the stereotypes of tax as either 1) a boring career made up only of mundane/routine tax return preparation or 2) a career to be fearful of in which one can expect to constantly struggle to deal with an overwhelmingly technical and complex set of tax laws.

Participants:
Josh Dunlap – KPMG (Portland)
Kenny Martin – Moss Adams (Eugene)
Nicole Hoby – Kernutt Stokes (Eugene)
Alyce Chapman – Anderson Group CPAs (Corvallis)
R. L. Widmer – Umbrella Properties (Eugene)
Laura Kent – Esco (Portland)
Nicholas Warner – Internal Revenue Service (Portland)
