CPA with Estate Administration Services

“This is the 4th summer that I've offered this internship and I always post the opportunity on Switchboard. Once again, I had a great pool of candidates who found the opportunity through this post. We interviewed candidates and made an offer to one, but really there were a few who I could have hired. I love helping out the UP community by sharing my insights and experience with current students who are interested in the healthcare IT field. I hope to offer this internship every summer, so feel free to reach out any time! ”

“I'm so happy to report that the UP Switchboard helped us find the great collin haahr . He's been with us for a couple weeks and is already having tremendous impact expanding clean energy and reducing carbon emissions. Thanks UP. We could use a few more like Collin. Shoot me an email if you're interested!”

“A senior graduating in Spring 2019 searched Switchboard for tags related to event planning - she came across this old offer and we are now getting coffee to talk about her interest in events! Great reminder to utilize the previous posts on Switchboard and see what offers are already out there. ”
