The Menlo College Career Services Center and Accounting Advisory Board hosted the Accounting Careers Scavenger Hunt last night. The event provided an opportunity for students majoring in accounting to meet with professional accountants and discuss their career options.
"There are so many different organizations and jobs within accounting that it is necessary to explore the field," said Mary Robins, Director of Career Services and organizer of the event. "The Accounting Scavenger Hunt also gives our students a chance to network with professionals who may be able to get them an internship or a job in the future."
Students, divided into groups of two, talked to each of the professionals for seven minutes before moving on to the next, thus conducting several informational interviews throughout the evening. Many of the professionals who took part in the event were Menlo alumni, including Matt Price, coordinator and host of the event.
The Scavenger Hunt was the first in a series of career related events, prepared by Menlo Career Services in collaboration with other departments and faculty. For a full schedule of upcoming events, please visit the Career Events page.
