Week 1

I graduated from Albion College in May of 2018 and recently began working for Clayton & McKervey in the FDI department. While I have only been at C&M for one week, I am already learning real world applications to the accounting concepts I studied at school. Since day one, everyone at the firm has been very friendly and welcoming. Everyone I have worked with throughout the training process thus far has been extremely informative, patient, and willing to help me learn.

I am looking forward to continuing to grow in this exciting and positive environment. One thing I found attractive, while learning about C&M, was the international aspect of the firm. I have always been interested in accounting and international business. Therefore, I am looking forward to the unique experience ahead of me.

Month 1

I can’t believe how quickly my first month has gone by! I feel as though I have learned so much and it has only been four weeks of exposure. I have already had the opportunity to contribute to client work. I think this month has been a perfect balance of opportunities for me to contribute to meaningful work while still learning from the more experienced staff. Every day I experience a new challenge and every day I am feeling more comfortable in my position. One thing that I really enjoy about C&M is the positive work environment. Everyone has been inclusive and willing to help, especially my team. I look forward to working with them every day. I am looking forward to the opportunities ahead and to see how much I can learn in the next few months!
