We have tried to utilize all possible angels to make sure our members are able to succeed. As every new executive board moves in, we aim to offer a seamless transition so our members have the best possible experience all year round. Pictured to the left is the executive board from the 2010-2011 academic year, many of them are currently working with either, the Big 4, mid-tiers, or other corporations, such as Disney. We look forward to carrying on what all the previous executive boards have done before us.
One of our main goals is to help our members achieve internship, or full-time, opportunities. The main way we try to achieve this goal is by offering as many professional
development opportunities as possible. Opportunities such as the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, bringing out recruiters of the Big 4 Accounting Firms during recruiting season, and
utilizing events and workships that are sponsored by the Big 4 are among the things we provide.
Success stories are readily available from fellow members about how events have completely shaped their professional opportunities. We look forward to helping as many members as possible achieve their professional aspirations.
