Christine Morgan graduated from the School of Business Administration in May 2010 with a concentration in Accounting. She is currently enrolled in the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) program.
While working towards her undergraduate degree, Morgan was a member of the Accounting Club. She says getting involved in the club gave her exposure to professionals in the accounting industry.
"The accounting club's end of the year trip to Boston was especially helpful because I met a recruiter at PricewaterhouseCoopers who offered to interview me for an intern position that has opened up at the last minute," said Morgan.
That internship eventually led to an offer for a full time position starting in the summer of 2011, after she graduates from the MAcc program.
Morgan believes that first year students need to take advantage of every networking opportunity.
"You never know who you will meet and what kind of help they will be able to offer you in the future," she said.
