“BDO's Pathway to Success was the highlight of my last summer break. This program really shows you the culture of BDO through fun, informative events and their friendly professionals. We even had the chance to hear from the CEO, COO, and other executives while learning about the day-to-day responsibilities of Associates. During the program, we went on a boat tour, walked around the city for a scavenger hunt, and networked with many different professionals. My tips for future attendees are to network with everyone you meet and get their information, learn about BDO as much as you can, and make sure to have fun!”

 “It’s really important to go to the program with an open mind. Use this opportunity to meet new people; you never know, they could be your future coworkers! I also think the Facebook private group page is a great way to get acquainted with others before the program. At the program itself, try sitting with new people during meals. After the program, use LinkedIn to connect with other students and even the speakers.”

“Pathway to Success was a great opportunity to learn about life as a public accountant. I had the chance to meet and talk with countless professionals, each having their own experiences and backgrounds. While there, I also participated in contests, went to a MLB game, and had interviews. Every aspect of this leadership program was fun and informative.”
