MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C., April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- While paying taxes is something most of us dread, the word taxes can actually have a positive meaning for young people who may be hearing for the first time about a lucrative, recession-proof tax career in strong need of entrants through JobsInTax.com. Due to the number of Baby Boomers retiring, combined with a U.S. tax code more complex and different from any other tax code in the world, this is an industry in need of domestic employees. As a result, a recent survey of corporate tax hiring authorities revealed that 67% of survey respondents recognize that staffing these roles will be difficult or very difficult in 2012.
To fill this need, Tax Talent CEO Tony Santiago created JobsInTax.com as the first and only free student connection to the tax profession. The site is also the first known student-career resource of its type for any industry. "JobsInTax.com arms students and tax career entrants with resources to make the most informed career decisions for long-term success—advice that senior tax professionals tell me they wish they had when starting out," said Santiago, who was instrumental in the build-out of tax departments for Fortune 100 companies over the past 30 years.
The site provides:
- the only tax education and career roadmap linking academic degrees to career options
- the most extensive and effective internship program in the country
- the largest and most accurate listing of tax scholarships in the US
- the largest real-time directory of entry level tax job opportunities within the US, with expected five-year average earnings of $100K
- professionally moderated discussion forums by professionals representing over 100 years of combined consulting experience
As part of the site rollout, JobsInTax is also sponsoring a $1000 scholarship. The winning student must be enrolled in a 4-Year Accredited Accounting program or an advanced tax degree program. Additional scholarship guidelines may be found by visiting www.JobsInTax.com.
