Week 1

I first heard about C&M at a fall career fair on campus. After meeting the recruiters, I was attracted to C&M because of the firm’s international focus and commitment to going above and beyond to service clients.

Thus far, C&M has been very exciting in my initial experience! I’m working in the SME department and am excited to be treated like a regular member of the staff. I will also, have the opportunity to be working on financial statements and tax!

What surprised me the most was the enriching community of C&M. The President and Shareholders have welcomed all the interns to ask questions and take advantage of mentorship. Additionally, my buddy, Drew, has been very helpful. I’m very excited for the rest of the summer and cannot wait to apply all the skills I have developed in the classroom.

Month 1

I have had a great experience with C&M over the past month. I have completed a variety of projects from tax returns to amended returns. Also, I have had the opportunity to work with multiple shareholders! However, my favorite thing about working at C&M is the community. No matter who I ask for help, any one of the staff members is always willing to sit down and make sure I understand a new concept or help me work through a problem. Whether I am asking a quick question or a question that may take an hour to explain, everyone I have encountered is willing to make time for me—especially my cube-mate, Ruben! He is one of the smartest and friendliest people in the office. I enjoy working with him because he is a great mentor. Ruben does not just want me to survive this summer internship, he wants me to also learn and enjoy my time. I am grateful to sit by him! Overall, my first month at C&M has been great and I look forward to the next coming weeks!
