Testimonials

“I often think back to my days with [Student Working Professionals] and I remember how everyone there really took the time to invest in me and train me up. There are not a lot of people and companies out there willing to do that, and I know I wouldn’t be where I am today apart from that. I am truly grateful for all that you have done for me and what you continue to do for other students like myself.”

“I have seen firsthand the type of commitment it takes to be a successful person, and the impact that positive attitudes can have on a workplace, and the type of culture those attitudes can create. I have met great new people, and had a lot of fun all the while learning things that will help me in my career and in my life.”

“ Gave me an opportunity to actually experience and learn what it would be like to work for a growing CPA firm by giving me an opportunity to work on different aspects of accounting functions. The mentoring during the internship and support too were overwhelming.”

“I would like to thank you again for the opportunity you have provided me with the program. The fact that you open your doors to so many students throughout the years says a lot about your company and ambition to help others. Also I would like to thank you for all your time and help you have provided me personally answering any questions I had or just providing us with a comfortable place to work. I would like to stay in touch with you and the company and hopefully if you have any summer seminars or training sessions you can open your doors again to me and teach me all there is to know. Thanks again”
