UHY LLP (“UHY”), one of the nation’s fastest growing accounting firms, just finished up it’s summer recruiting and leadership program, UHY Connect, where over one hundred accounting students were given a glimpse inside UHY offices across the country. The program allows potential recruits to get a feel for the firm’s culture and working environment, and make connections with partners, accounting staff and others prior to graduating and choosing their career path.
An important aspect of the program is the charitable component. Connect participants partake in a community service project with one of the firm’s nonprofit clients or affiliates. UHY has a long history of supporting their client’s missions and community goals. They place great emphasis on community outreach from each recruit’s first connection with UHY because corporate social responsibility is a high priority at all levels within the firm. Activities ranged from sorting nearly 8,000 pounds of food at a Michigan food bank to a campus cleanup project in New York.
“Each year we host UHY Connect to allow college accounting students to take a deeper look at our firm and learn all they can about its people, culture and environment. Students work together on a community service project, and participate in panel discussions and a social team building activity,” said recruiting manager, Rina Henning. “We believe it is important to potential recruits to see our commitment to the communities we serve.”
