Have you been considering learning more about McGladrey? Would you like a sneak peek inside our firms and our industry? Then maybe the Pathways Program is right for you. According to Amanda Coffin, a 2011 winter assurance intern in the Davenport, Iowa office, “Pathways was an awesome opportunity to evaluate the environment and people that you could potentially be doing an internship with. I knew after attending Pathways that I would enjoy working here at McGladrey and enjoy spending time with the people I work with.”

The Pathways program is similar to an unpaid externship where students are exposed to a variety of experiences. Participants have the opportunity to interact with all levels of individuals, from associate to partner. Some of the planned events for 2011 include a scavenger hunt, a panel discussion with our various lines of business, a community service event, as well as a fun outing to conclude the program. All of these items add up to provide a great mix of a business and fun!

Lindsey Kubitz, a 2011 winter tax intern in the Davenport, Iowa office had this to say about her Pathways experience: “Students should apply to Pathways because it gives a strong feel of the firm. Being there really showed the environment of the workplace and the overall atmosphere. I received tips and guidance that are useful for college and for my professional life. While being at Pathways, I built relationships that in the long-run landed me an internship.”

Interested? Interviews are currently underway and space is limited. In order to learn more about the Pathways program and how to apply, contact your local campus recruiter or visit www.mcgladrey.josbs to learn more about our organization.
