UPAA’s President, Luke Bowen, talked about needing members to participate in a dodgeball tournament as well as a day of service on March 28. Three professionals from BDO then talked to us, with one of the employees working in tax, and the other two in consulting. One of these consultants worked specifically in litigation. They used bingo as a method to talk about different topics and spoke about the need to take the CPA as soon as possible and the importance of studying. The professionals talked about the many benefits of working at BDO. These included BDO’s culture and the ability to maintain a work-life balance through flexible hours. The employees said that while they enjoyed public accounting for its variety, the long hours are a major consideration.
