Being an older mother of two, with one on the way, I was apprehensive about recruiting. However, everyone in the career services team was professional, helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. They provided crucial and up-to-date training that was relevant to my personal situation. I was offered the perfect job and feel they were a key factor to my success. I will always be grateful to them.”

-Brittany Akeripa, MAcc 2020, Audit Track, Ernst & Young

“Business Career Services has been a tremendous help during my stay at the David Eccles School of Business. From resume touch up, to enhanced networking skills, to practice interviews, BCS was there for me along the way. All these efforts together with thorough preparation eventually helped me launch a career with my dream company. It’s not easy going through recruiting with a heaving study load and a part-time job, but BCS made the whole process more manageable. Thank you BCS for all you have done for me.”

-Sunny Shepherd, MAcc 2020, ABA Track, PWC
