Nine accounting firms conducted over 84 virtual interviews with 26 Accounting majors during McDaniel College’s annual Interviewing Day on Sept. 30. Three hours. 26 Accounting majors. 84 virtual interviews.
Although not the traditional in-person Interviewing Day at McDaniel College, 26 Accounting majors had the opportunity to meet virtually with nine accounting firms for internships or jobs. Over 84 interviews were conducted in a three-hour time period.
Most of the students involved during the Sept. 30 event were juniors, although a few seniors and sophomores also participated.
Even if the students were not looking to gain immediate employment, this experience allows them to practice interview skills and make connections. Many of the companies that take part each year are represented by McDaniel alumni — and many of these alumni were hired after participating as a student in Interviewing Day.
Charess Thompson, an Accounting and Business Administration major from Randallstown, Md., who interviewed with CliftonLarsonAllen, Gross, Mendelsohn & Associates, and Withum, said, “I enjoyed speaking with the recruiters and some McDaniel alumni who work there now. I loved learning more about the company and I am excited to learn more and gain more experience.”
Other accounting firms represented were Bounds Accounting & Tax Services, E. Cohen & Company, Gorfine, Schiller & Gardyn P.A., KatzAbosch, RSM, and Sturgill.
