Kent Klaus & Christine Landoll, two professors from two separate universities, joined us for this special edition episode of Where Accountants Go, the Accounting Careers Podcast. We invited these two exceptional educators on the show to share the unique and creative programs they and their respective universities were providing for accounting students related to starting their careers. Kent is with DePaul University and Christine is with George Mason. Professors and other decision-makers in academia will benefit from this episode in that we cover numerous different programs that each university is offering. However, students and recent graduates will benefit as well because we cover quite a bit of job-search advice while talking about each program. This episode has value for individuals at many different points in their careers. A few of the items we cover include: A 10-week career course specifically for accounting majors Mentorship programs at both schools (separate from the internship programs) A program one of the universities offers called “Executive in Residence” And many other individual aspects of the programs such as both long-term and short-term career planning, networking skills, and virtual interviewing pointers This episode is a little longer than our typical shows, but it will definitely make you think more creatively about your own career planning or benefits you may be able to offer your students if you are an instructor yourself.
