Nicholas Liddell is graduating with an Honors Bachelor of Science in Accounting, a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a minor in Information Systems for his hard work with his thesis titled “Undergraduate Recruiting for Accounting Majors.” Nicholas was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah but will be moving to Los Angeles this summer to begin his Rotational Financial Analyst role at The Walt Disney Company. He will work on the studio lot and rotate divisions every six months. Congratulations Nicholas, and welcome to your alumni network! Read on to learn more about Nicholas’ thesis and his answers to our questions about his Eccles Experience.
Tell us something about your thesis – your research, your findings, or what you learned:
Recruiting for top tier companies and positions can be more difficult for Eccles students than students at target schools; however, it is possible and the students that get to these positions often thrive! Instead of interviews coming easy, they have to work for it, and it pays off on the job.
What was your most memorable experience as an Eccles student?
My most memorable experience was being in a high-speed boat in a rain storm and driving underneath Iguazu falls in Argentina with Eccles Global. It was EPIC!
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, acknowledge or shout out?
I’d like to thank Paige Witt, Buzz Welch, Paul Brown, and Shannon Charles. They are all incredible and shaped my college experience.
