Accountants make the world go round

But don’t think that accountants only work in accounting firms. Who runs the numbers on professional sports contracts and major movie deals? Accountants. 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.

“It’s mind-blowing to me the things I still want to do. I know it’s all possible because of the amazing people here.”
