413 Days and Counting!

October 2013. That is the month during which I will start my career as a federal tax associate in the Columbus office of KPMG.  After ten weeks of learning, networking, and finishing projects for my team, I am happy to say that I will rejoin the Fed Tax department permanently next fall! Until then, I […]

Approaching the Finish Line

As I prepare to start my last week of the internship with KPMG, I find it important to take a minute to look back over the last eight weeks with the company and decide if public accounting, the Big Four, and KPMG specifically is the right career path for me. I was chatting with a […]

What?! School Prepares You for Work?!
What?!  School Prepares You for Work?!

This week I’m switching it up from tips for some much-needed reflection.  I have to say that I can’t imagine a better program to prepare me for an internship with the Big Four than Fisher’s Accounting Honors Program. A huge part of my internship is examining tax compliance work from a prior year and preparing […]

Nervous, Excited and Hectic

This fall, I will be a Junior. I’m majoring in accounting. I’m also the Vice President of Budgeting for the Crew team (in the boat, I’m the coxswain). During my free time this summer, I plan on rowing with GCRA (Greater Columbus Rowing Association). I’m going to be living just off campus on High Street […]

"We Go to the Canteen at Half Twelve"

When I found out that I would be participating in KPMG’s Global Internship Program in Ireland, I was happy because I knew it was an English speaking country (I took Latin in high school…very interesting, but not exactly practical).  However, I wasn’t completely expecting to encounter all of the different phrases and words I hear […]

First Days in Dublin, Ireland
First Days in Dublin, Ireland

I may never leave Dublin. My ideal type of weather is a football Saturday in the middle of October and the weather in Dublin is very comparable, even in July.  While the weather in the United States was approaching 95+ degrees, Dublin was at a very comfortable 65 degrees (18 degrees Celsius) every day last […]

Springfield, Illinois: Lincoln, Horseshoe Sandwiches, and Auditing

Springfield, Illinois is known for being the city where Abraham Lincoln, one of America’s greatest Presidents, got his start in politics.  It is also said to be the place where corn dogs were created (although that claim is disputed), and is the home to the famous Horseshoe Sandwich. I had the great privilege of sampling […]

Internship Wrap Up

As the summer is coming to an end and Fall classes are right around the corner, I decided to take a few minutes to recap and look back on my Summer internship experience at Cohen & Company. First of all, my favorite part of the entire experience would be all the opportunities I was given […]

How Coursework Connects to Intern Projects
How Coursework Connects to Intern Projects

For this week, I decided to look back on all of the projects I have been assigned throughout this summer and figure out how my coursework has helped me succeed as an intern here at Cohen & Company. First of all, since I have been exposed primarily to such a niche group, fund auditing, the […]

Advice for Internships

It took me awhile this week to figure out what I wanted to write about. I decided to give some advice, from my point of view, to students who are considering pursuing an internship. This past week I was invited up to the Cleveland office to take part in the interviewing process for next year’s […]

Internship Program @ Cohen & Company

For this week’s entry I decided I would describe what the intern program is all about at Cohen. Having been involved with the firm in the winter on a part-time basis prevented me from being exposed to the internship program in its entirety. It all starts the first week for training but after that the […]

What Fieldwork is all about
What Fieldwork is all about

I decided to take sometime this week to give a brief explanation about fieldwork. When an engagement team begins to prepare for an upcoming audit, the first step usually consists of planning. This step can range from setting up the software to record the work, preparing preliminary workpapers and contacting the client about documents and samples […]
