I was first introduced to Clayton & McKervey at a recruiting event while at Macomb Community College. I always knew I didn’t want to intern with a Big Four firm where I would be just another body doing the same task all day every day. C&M appealed to me because it seemed like a supportive place to work that was invested in my professional growth. After virtually attending Reach Beyond in 2021 I knew this was a firm I would love to work for – seeing the relationships everyone had with each other I was able to confirm my initial thoughts on the firm.
My first week with C&M felt a little overwhelming being my first time working at an accounting firm, but everyone I met assured me that I could come to them with any questions I had at any time. It didn’t take long to feel like a valued part of the team. I wasn’t expecting to be able to visit and interact with clients as an intern, I felt like I got the full experience of being a staff accountant. C&M exceeded my already high expectations, the interactions and experiences I’ve had in the 3 months I’ve been with the firm have been nothing but positive. I’m greatly looking forward to my future with Clayton & McKervey!
