Accounting – Saint Vincent College
I just wanted to say thank you to my GYF colleagues. Thank you for making my summer one to remember. Thank you for all of the learning experiences. Thank you for making me feel like part of the team. Thank you for always taking time out of your day to answer my questions. Thank you for all of the mentoring moments. Finally, thank you for giving me a chance to grow as a person and a professional.
I came into this summer with absolutely no expectations regarding my internship. I simply did not know enough about to the field to create any expectations. However, I did create some expectations for myself. I wanted to learn as much as I possibly could. I wanted to learn all I could about auditing, or just public accounting in general.
At GYF, I was given the chance to learn through experience and from the professionals
at the firm. You gave me the chance to learn through doing, rather than just watching.
This helped me gain a much better grasp of the profession.
The people at GYF care about your success. The attitude around the office is collaborative, not competitive. This firm fosters a positive organizational culture that is focused on giving team members the tools they need to serve the clients in the best way possible.
In addition to working in Assurance & Advisory Services, I was also given an opportunity to work with the Business Valuation team. In my short time with them, I was able to learn so much about the field. They were always eager to help and made me feel welcome.
After the summer ends, I will return to Saint Vincent College and graduate in May of 2018 with a B.S. in Accounting. I look forward to the road ahead and everything that is in store.
My advice to the future classes of GYF interns – ask questions, work hard, make friends, and most importantly, have fun. I know I did!
