We wanted to learn more about our interns so, their buddies asked them some questions about themselves, and their thoughts on an accounting career. Below is Courtney’s Q&A with one of our summer interns, Jacob.

At DeJoy, Knauf & Blood, we’ve built our unique internship program on the conviction that every member of our team plays an integral role in our firm’s success. Our program is designed to identify potential team members who are hardworking and passionate, and to prepare you for a successful transition from college to career. We asked our interns a few questions on how they felt about their time with Team DKB this busy season and here’s what they had to say!

Our firm’s management team participated in a Strategic Planning meeting this fall led by Dave Fechtman, CEO and Dan Silvert, President of the Velocity Group. They are leadership coaches, and behavioral style experts who took us through several exercises of learning about ourselves, and learning about one another. This included the fascinating four quadrants of the DISC assessment tool, to better understand our blended personalities.

You are reading part one, of a four part blog series I will be doing to explain the steps our firm’s Executive Committee took to speak to the millennial generation. Also known as Generation Y, Millennials are defined by researchers as those who vary in age, having birth years ranging from early 1980’s to the early 2000’s, Millennials represent more than 75 million people today and are making their mark on the business world as avid entrepreneurs and savvy professionals. They’re confident, creative and extremely comfortable with technology, and now we are learning to leverage their talents.

The mere thought of the CPA exam can be stressful, and now to shake things up even further, the exam is going through a metamorphism in 2017. A metamorphism that is said to make the exam more difficult and will test candidates at a higher level of knowledge. The changes in the exam stem from the thought that as the business environment changes so does the work that newly licensed CPAs perform. Gone are the days of solely remembering and understanding information, CPAs need to analyze information, be able to think critically, and problem solve in their day-to-day jobs.

This morning, for reasons associated primarily with the time change that occurred this weekend, it was lighter outside my window as my second alarm rang to get me going. After all, it was Monday morning and I needed to be heading off to work. It helped that the sun was shining on the bright leaves still clinging to the trees, and the frosty ground crisp and white would soon warm up to the 60 degree weather that has been promised to us this coming week.
