Field Placement - Accounting

FWKA 6252

All students will complete 20 days (140 hours) of unpaid Accounting Field Placement with a company that has been approved by the Field Placement Coordinator. The Field Placement will be arranged by the student based on their skills and career interests. A wide variety of positions are available, including accounting, auditing, tax, financial analysis, etc. It is up to the student to find the appropriate employer and placement for their interests. Students' work experience during the field placement will depend on the employers' needs and will be evaluated by the employer upon the completion of the 20 day period. Students will be expected to prepare for this work experience by creating a formal professional resume and cover letter. At the end of the Field Placement students must prepare a formal report about their experiences. Students will be evaluated by their employer as part of the overall evaluation criteria.
