Amer is a recent graduate from Eastern Michigan University. Before starting his career with Clayton & McKervey, he was working at a family owned accounting firm in Livonia, MI.

Week 1

One of the first things I noticed when I started talking to the Clayton & McKervey team was that everyone had a genuine interest in getting to know me. Everyone in the office wants to get to know you and help you on your path to success. There isn’t a person in the office that I wouldn’t feel comfortable going to with a question; the team is very inviting and helpful.

So far Clayton & McKervey has met all of my expectation and then some. The team has given me all the tools and training I need to succeed. From day one, I was treated like a part of the team rather than the new guy and they don’t hesitate to get you into the mix of things. I don’t think there was really anything that surprised me during my first week. Throughout the recruiting/interviewing process the team told me exactly what I could expect and everything they said has held up.

I’m really looking forward to getting started on new projects and learning about the variety of clients that we provide services for. I’m looking forward to all the new and exciting opportunities that are available for me to learn!

Month 1

So far, my experience has been great. I have worked on several different projects now some of which are larger and others are smaller. I really love the fact that the C&M team doesn’t hesitate to put you on new engagements that will challenge you and get you to think critically.

Another thing I really like about working at C&M is the people I work with. Everyone is so helpful and they do it all with a smile on their face. I walk into the office every day with a smile on my face looking forward to another great day.

One particularly memorable moment was going out to a client’s for field work. I did not expect to be out in the field as early as I was but it was a great experience to see client-firm interactions. I was able to see the facilities of the client as well as observe the inquiries we make for certain procedures.

Overall, my first month at C&M has been great. I am getting into the rhythm of things around the office as well as understanding more and more each day. Each day has given me something new to figure out and understand.
