Week 1

My name is Rosemary Hayes and I recently graduated from Grand Valley State University a degree in accounting. I plan to go back for my fifth year to obtain 150 credits which will allow me to get my CPA.

I first met with C&M at my college’s pre-recruitment night, and I was originally interested in them because of their friendly atmosphere. The recruiters focused more on getting to know me rather than overloading me with questions, and this really stood out. I fell in love with C&M as soon as I came to the office.

C&M has been more than what I expected. During the interview process I was able to speak with a handful of managers and senior accountants, but I was unsure if I would get that opportunity during my internship. Being an intern at C&M last summer and again this summer, I’m certain that this is possible and it’s encouraged!

I was surprised how prepared C&M was for the interns. You’re given a schedule on your first day with agenda for the next two weeks which includes training information, meetings with your supervisor, buddy check-ins, etc.! The firm really tries to acclimate you as soon and as easily as possible.

Because this will be my second internship with C&M, I’m most looking forward to continue building relationships with co-workers and clients. I want to apply what I learned last summer and have an even better experience this time around!
