Accountant

May 2017 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

The aspect of the internship experience that I liked the most was having the opportunity to work on client projects. During the recruiting process, one of my interviewers confirmed that interns are treated as if they are first-year associates and that was consistent with my internship experience. I also liked the collaborative nature of the work. Accounting projects for large clients require thoroughly executed teaming in which those with the most experience coaches those trying to learn the ropes.

What I wish was different

Grasping at the glut of opportunities in a more forthwith manner.

Advice

Find yourself in what you always wanted to due and pursue your goals. Know what you are looking for in an entity. Do research, office visits, and select the opportunity that arises that is most in alignment with those qualities and characteristics that made your list. Have fun. Learn a lot and grow professionally!
