NJ Scholarship Institute 2010
Three Accounting Students Selected to Attend The Scholars Institute
The summer of 2010 three outstanding University of Scranton accounting students were selected to attend The Scholars Institute at Monmouth University in New Jersey: Christopher Sullivan, Ryan Nolan, and Christian Dugan will be completing their junior year this semester.
Since its inception in 2002, Scholars Institute has been providing high-achieving accounting and finance students with a competitive edge. As part of it two-day residency program, it provides interactive programming that helps students identify their goals and gives them the essential tools to reach them. And not only does Scholars Institute supplement classroom education, it also provides the opportunity to make connections with fellow students, CPAs, human-resource personnel and NJSCPA staff - its future resources!
Some familiar sponsors for the Institute are Deloitte, Ernst & Young LLP, KPMG LLP, and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.
The Institute is a fun-filled program where the students met with other accounting students and leading CPAs in a relaxed atmosphere. They get a jump-start on their career and get an edge on the competition as they learn the secrets of effective communication, the power of body language, how to put their resume ahead of the others, and more.
Topics at this year's Institute included dressing for success, resume tips, rehearsing interview questions, networking questions, and how to dress down for work without looking like you're headed to the beach. The final topic was on moving from college to career, which included expert advice on the hiring process.
Students who attended the Scholarship Institute said it was truly a wonderful experience.
