KEEP YOUR TECHNICAL SKILLS SHARP!
In addition to the necessary continuing professional education (CPE) to maintain an active CPA license, and meet the requirements of the AICPA, we provide soft skill training as part of our EARN initiative. EARN (Employee Advancement & Retention Network) was created to determine and meet the needs of our diverse employee base. We are not a “once size fits all” Firm.
Employees are offered the opportunity to develop professionally through seminars and local, regional and self-study courses. In-house training programs are given regularly which cover a wide range of subjects, including those applicable to a specific industry or discipline. Guest speakers provide a fresh perspective.

Our full-time Career Coach will not only provide strategies to you for passing the CPA exam, but also help guide you along your individual career path. You will receive one-on-one mentoring not just from our Career Coach but from your Performance Advisor as well. These resources are dedicated to you, your happiness and your advancement with Freed Maxick.
We have a great bonus policy to help you pass the CPA exam too!
Regular evaluations and performance conversations provide you with the candid feedback you need to succeed. We’ll cover your technical skills, teamwork, client focus, productivity and dependability. Areas for development will be discussed and together, appropriate plans for focus will be determined. We know that everyone learns differently, so your individual goals are established just for you. Clear direction and guidance will help you advance to the next level!
