SEC seeking CPAs.
The Securities and Exchange Commission currently is seeking CPAs to fill 35 to 40 positions in the Division of Corporation Finance. The division--the commission's largest--is responsible for seeing that disclosure requirements are met in financial documents of publicly held companies. CPAs are needed to review registration statements, annual reports, proxy and other materials filed by public companies to determine their compliance with accounting principles and auditing standards as well as the commission's rules and regulations.
The division has a number of branches, notes Terry Iannaconi, the division's deputy chief accountant, with accountants, financial analysts and attorneys working in teams to consider the diverse aspects of each review.
"Each branch has specific industry groups for which it has primary responsibility," said Iannaconi, "so branch staff members become |specialists' within those industries."
Candidates should have a minimum of three years of audit experience, including time with publicly held companies.
