Yeo & Yeo is excited to announce that in summer 2017 we will unveil our inaugural Accounting Summer Leadership Program.

The program offers undergraduate accounting students the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and learn about the unique culture of our firm.

Yeo & Yeo strongly believes that nurturing and mentoring our professionals from day one of their career will help them achieve their career goals and aspirations. We provide our professionals with mentorship, career advocacy, and skill development through a variety of programs – now including a Summer Student Leadership Program. The firm’s Career Advocacy Team empowered our group of young professionals to create an informative and enjoyable summer program that will benefit college students majoring in accounting.

As a young professional at Yeo & Yeo, I feel honored to be a pioneer with this program. We have made it our top priority to construct a program that will provide up-and-coming accounting students with exposure to the opportunities in public accounting and give them an inside view of the culture of our firm. Not only do we want to offer students a perspective on the life of an accountant, but we also wish to build relationships and help them develop to prepare for post-graduation.

Over the course of the two-day program we have organized activities and events that will engage and challenge the students. The first day of the program will be fun-filled with dinner and entertainment to provide time for the students to meet key members of our team including partners, and professionals from our offices throughout Michigan.

On the second day, students will have the opportunity to shadow our professionals in their day-to-day work environment, hear career testimonials, and perform a client case study. The students will also have the chance to participate in an interview panel which will allow them to polish their interviewing skills.

To be considered for the Summer Leadership Program, you must have at least one year of college experience and have a demonstrated interest in a career in public accounting. We ask that you submit a current resume and cover letter that addresses your interest in the program by May 5, 2017.
