— by on September 9th, 2015

Sophomores and juniors who are interested in careers in accounting are invited to apply for a one-day trip to Northern Virginia over Reading Days.

The program will take place at PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Tysons Corner office. Alumni from BakerTilly, CohnReznick, EY, Deloitte, and PwC will provide presentations concerning the different service lines.

One session will provide an overview of the profession and its relationship to regulators. Further sessions will cover audit, tax and consulting/advisory services. During lunch, a group of second-year staff members will talk about their first-year experiences and what students can expect when working for a large accounting firm.

A bus will depart Lexington on Thursday, Oct. 15 at 7:30 a.m. and return to campus around 6 p.m. The trip is free for students but they must apply to participate. Applications will be accepted through LexLink. Visit careers.wlu.edu, click on the LexLink promo and search for job ID 2939. Applications are due Sept. 18.

The trip is sponsored by the Accounting Department, Beta Alpha Psi and Career Development and is hosted by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
