Felicia Cox                                

Class of 2013

Major: Accounting - MSA

Full-time Position with CBIZ MHM, LLC

Title of Position: Audit Associate

Why did you chose your current position?

In deciding between two great companies, I chose CBIZ because I felt that it was a great company to begin establishing my career. They are one of the top nationally ranked accounting firms by Accounting Today; the people at CBIZ  were great and the opportunities they had seem endless.

Describe your new role?

As an audit associate, I will be a part of a team that provides both audit and tax services to its clients.

How did you obtain your current position?

I applied through UICcareers, although I was only chosen as an alternate. I was given the last interview slot.

What advice do you have for students currently searching for internships or full time positions?

Never stop looking. There are countless opportunities out there, even if you feel you may not possess the skills to do the job remember that skills can be learned. Do not get discouraged when you don’t get the response you desire. I have been on countless interviews and actually received two full-time job offers this time around.
