On behalf of Clark Nuber, we are excited to invite UWB BAP students to apply for our First Annual Summer Leadership Event! We feel our full day format will be a wonderful learning experience where each student will walk away with new skills and competencies to aid them in launching a successful career in accounting.
This year’s event will be held at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland at 1200 Carillon Point, Kirkland, WA 98033. Students will have the opportunity to visit with professionals from Clark Nuber at all levels (Associates – Shareholders). We have a full program of engaging speakers and topics, including:
- Networking Skills – How to Stand Out in a Crowd
- Life in a Public Accounting Firm – Panel Discussion
- More Than Forks and Knives – Successful Business Meals
- An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure – Fraud Prevention
- Overcoming Your Fear of Public Speaking
- How to Find a Good Mentor
We have set the date for Monday, August 5th and will include lunch. A reception will be hosted immediately following the event with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments. Application forms are due by Friday, April 12th. They can be e-mailed or mailed to the firm before this date.
This event is geared towards juniors and seniors that are strongly considering a rewarding career in a mid-size public accounting firm. Students must be able to commit to the full day if they apply. Selections will be made by April 30th and students can expect to receive additional agenda details at that time.
Please contact Lizzie Rahm, Senior Human Resources Generalist, Clark Nuber P.S. for any further inquiries. We are looking forward to hosting this event and are confident they will find the day to be both fun and informative!
