The accounting club is one of the groups here on campus. They do various activities throughout the year including having guest speakers. Last year one of the speakers was from the Minnesota society of Certified Public Accountants to inform accounting students about how to earn their CPA in Minnesota. This week I have the opportunity to take a tour of Fastenal. This is the company I discussed in my previous post about Will Oberton. Fastenal has some close ties to Saint Mary’s as many students work there during the summer or part-time during the school year. This tour is about getting an introduction to corporate accounting and the different areas. I will be able to meet some employees involved in accounts payable and general ledger. This will be a good opportunity to network and to learn more about accounting jobs that are out there.
