Co-op Reflections: Accounting Edition

Students with accounting majors reflect on their Co-op experience:

Marija Kotlaja – Junior – Accounting Major
My tax preparation internship at TPP Certified Public Accountants has given me a wonderful insight into the accounting world that I am about to enter full time. I was able to gain exposure to a wide range of individual income taxation concepts as well as a practical working knowledge of the filing requirement for federal, state and local individual income tax returns. 


Ollie Tettamble - Sophomore
Double Major in Accounting and Financial Markets and Economic Analysis
Not only does my accounting internship have some great perks (like casual Fridays!) but my real-world experience in accounting has taught me so much more in a short amount of time than I could have ever imagined. Here I am calculating current maturities for my company's lease payments.

Brian Davis – Senior – Corporate Finance and Accounting Major
I currently work at Cerner Corporation on the project management team in the US Consulting Organization. Working at Cerner has allowed me to enhance my overall business skills, and I have been fortunate to be exposed to a variety of projects during my time here.  My team often asks for my input on new processes, which has been extremely beneficial in my development as a professional. Plus jeans casual everyday isn't too bad either.

Elizabeth Uxa – Senior – Accounting Major
This semester I had the opportunity to work at Summit Sportswear, a small business that designs and sells  ladies and  youth collegiate apparel. My task within the company is to enter bills and create the invoices for our customers. Communication is key within a small organization because everything I do, somehow affects someone else within the company. Here is a photo of myself with my coworkers before one of our weekly meetings.

R.J. Bondon – Senior – Accounting Major
After completing my tax internship with KPMG this spring, I can finally reflect on the wonderful experience I had with the firm. I learned almost every aspect of the tax department during the past few months and cannot wait to see where public accounting takes me.


Will Brockmeyer – Junior – Accounting Major
Wagstaff and Cartmell gives me the opportunity to work on various different projects. It's interesting to see all the aspects of the court system and the preparation that goes into it. Here I am sorting through client information to input into our system, NetDocs. This is just one of the several projects I am currently working on.
