Stamford Office Named NYSCEEA Employer of the Year

On Monday, October 27, the Stamford, CT McGladrey office was named the New York State Cooperative and Experiential Education Association (NYSCEEA) 2008 Employer of the Year. Jerry Landau (Partner), Maren Mercado (Campus Recruiter), and Mary Maguire (HR Director) were specifically recognized at the awards ceremony in Corning, NY for their partnership with Pace University.

Since 2006, McGladrey has hired 14 students into intern and full-time positions. The ongoing feedback from Pace students was that their internship was "fantastic" and "very worthwhile". Interns are assigned mentors and buddys, and are assigned engaging and meaningful work, working alongside top management and experience associates. Interns are also able to rotate through the Audit, Tax and Small Business practices to ultimately create a very broad experience.

Maren, Mary and Jerry have also been active on-campus at Pace, participating in practice interview sessions, and sponsoring the annual Etiquette dinner. According to Sue Zankel, Manager of Employee Relations at Pace, McGladrey...

" a worthy recipient of this award as they exemplify the ideals of experiential education by demonstrating outstanding supervision and mentoring of students in the workplace. In addition they continually strive to create programs and environments for students were they can gain substantive practical pre-professional experiences while attending college. "

Congratulations to Maren, Mary and Jerry for this outstanding achievement!
