“I felt I had tremendous opportunities when I graduated from Bloomsburg University’s accounting program and I was looking for a way to give back to the students of my alma mater. When I graduated 18 years ago, the accounting program was as strong as it is today, but I never really had the opportunity to interact with business leaders that got their education and their start at Bloomsburg University. I was excited to learn about the Sophomore Experiential Learning (SEL) Program, which matches students with alumni in their chosen fields and provides them with an opportunity to shadow alumni in their workplace. I hosted two accounting majors for three days and provided them with an opportunity to meet with accounting professionals at various stages in their careers in the hope of providing these students some context to the career decisions they were going to make in the coming years. The experience was very satisfying for me and I hope made a difference in the way these students think about their careers.”

I am interested in hosting a BU student for a job shadowing experience
