How to Find an Accounting Summer Internship in 2 Weeks or Less

young female office worker

Last week I prepared a live webinar for many of you and it was an incredible success! So much so that I have already scheduled the next one (sign up here).

I walked you through the steps I use with anyone who get’s their resume reviewed by me to find a job or internship FAST. This can also help you find any accounting job or summer accounting internship in just a few short weeks. I also answered about 50 questions on the process from the attendees.

While the live webinar was great, a few of your have asked to have the recorded version to make sure you remember every step of the process. For that reason, I am going to release this recorded version of the webinar:

I am not covering creating your resume, cover letter, or how to succeed in the interview. This is just helping you get 5, 10 or 15 phone and in-person interviews with any company YOU are interested in (firm, government, private company, etc.). I walk you through how to reasearch potential companies, what to say in the email, how to find their email, how often you should follow up, and more!

I have also included the notes I only gave to people on the webinar. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t attend my next webinar. I might not always be this willing to release all the notes on the blog!

Here are the notes to get you started on the process:

Subject: Appropriate Person

I am currently a student from [INSERT NAME] and will be graduating in [INSERT GRAD MONTH AND YEAR]. I have attached my resume and cover letter for your to review. I am eager to discuss the opportunities with [INSERT COMPANY NAME].

If you are the appropriate person to speak with, what does your calendar look like?
