Pinterest is one of the most popular photo-sharing websites that allows users to create their own image Pinterest boards where they can “pin” images they like. People usually start by creating different boards for different categories of their interest spheres: art, food & drink, geek, design, technology, travel, etc. Then they start filling each of their boards with photos, illustrations or videos that belong in that group, either by adding visuals they created or browsing the Internet to find good content, or by repinning images they like on other Pinterest users’ boards.
If you’ve ever used or just seen a Pinterest account, you know that many of these pins are light, humorous aspects of a topic or interest sphere. So, one would think that serious, intellectual content for CPAs and accountants-to-be doesn’t belong to such a fun-sharing portal. You’d be surprised!
Pinterest hosts many Pinterest boards designed for accountants, bankers and other finance professionals, but also those who are just entering this exciting field. Pins in the CPA and accounting category are there to:
– Provide money-saving tips and other frugal advice
– Offer sympathy to CPA exam takers
– Point us to quality articles on the topic
– Present helpful infographics for accountants (job-hunting tips, average salaries, etc.)
– Point us to good test-prep websites
– Make us laugh when we feel like crying
– Show us beautiful locations and fun things to do after passing the CPA exam
Without much ado, let’s take a look at some of the best Pinterest boards created by individuals who want to share their accounting experiences, thoughts and good tips with others. The boards are separated into categories, so it will be easier for you to find them and start following them. Let us know in the comment section if there’s another great Pinterest board to follow!
