Last Thursday I got a call and was officially offered the intern position for Spring semester at the accounting firm I interviewed with a couple of weeks ago. I accepted (obviously!) and am so excited to start. It is a part-time internship, which fits perfectly into my light last semester AND it’s paid. I feel grateful because so many students these days have to settle for unpaid internships. I’m excited to beef up my resume and learn more about my field. I’m finally building a foundation for my career!
I really put myself out there and used connections to land this job. I realize now that you have control over your own future and success. In my previous degree program I felt very lost and formed no solid connections with professors and firms. This time around I made a big effort to stand out, attend events and get to know my professors and it really paid off!
