OPPORTUNITY
Multiple Leadership Co-ops

Using OU’s Handshake, I found a few opportunities to attend leadership programs with the big four accounting firms. After doing some research, I realized how important and beneficial these programs were, and I knew I needed help to prepare and reached out to Career Services.

At Career Services, I met with Andrea Mill, and she was beyond helpful. At my first appointment, we reviewed my resume and cover letter where Andrea was able to make many suggestions and improvements. I even left with advice on how to alter my resume after attending these programs.

The following week I set up another appointment with Andrea for a mock interview. Andrea made me very comfortable with a less formal style, which turned out to be very beneficial and constructive. After that appointment, I left feeling very confident and equipped with the ability to rock my interviews.

I am very fortunate to say that I received a spot for different leadership programs for EY, KPMG and PwC. I cannot thank Andrea and Career Service enough for their help and support along this journey!
