Sophomore Year

CPA License

At this point, you may still be thinking about what you want to major in and are probably still exploring various career paths.

If you are considering a career in accounting, you should begin to pursue your license as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). A CPA license is a respected credential that can lead to increased opportunity, job security, and salary potential.

Many careers in accounting require candidates to be eligible to take the CPA Exam in the state in which they want to work. It is important to make sure that you will meet your state's requirements when you graduate. Meet with a faculty advisor or career counselor or check the NASBA website for eligibility rules.

Internships

During your junior year, it is important to start preparing for internship recruiting.

Internships are typically available to students who will graduate 12-18 months after they intern.

On many campuses, KPMG recruits students who will graduate on a four-year track in the fall of their third year. Students on a five-year track will recruit in the fall of their fourth year. KPMG recruits on some campuses in the spring, so it is important to check with your Career Center so that you know when we will be on your campus.
