The Menlo College Accounting Advisory Board in co-operation with Career Services hosted Menlo’s third annual Accounting Careers Scavenger Hunt on January 28. The event showcased the opportunities of pursuing a career in accounting and gave students the chance to meet with members of the Menlo College Accounting Advisory Board and executives from BPM, Moss Adams, and Robert Half Finance, as well as other Silicon Valley accounting firms.

Students talked with each of the professionals for eight minutes before moving on to the next, thus conducting several informational interviews throughout the evening.

“The Accounting Scavenger Hunt was an amazing experience,” described junior Casey Showalter, one of the 26 students who attended the event. “It gave us insight into the lives of accountants and helped us gain more knowledge about a potential career path.”
