Who helps the government keep track of the many ways it collects and spends money? Accountants. Who helps tech startups figure out their venture capital needs or the best time to go public? Accountants. When the time comes, the Pomerantz Career Center offers a wealth of resources to help you find internships, networking opportunities, and your first—or next—accounting job.
