Dine in Style

Jun 26, 2018

My first experience in the accounting world is here with Cohen, and it sure has been an interesting few weeks so far. I have gotten exposure to a lot things that I found I knew very little about at the beginning. The first few weeks were definitely slow ones, but progress has started to surface. To my surprise this foreign language of tax returns has been looking much less foreign and I am truly learning a lot. I have been getting some legitimate exposure to work that will help me to succeed in my career in the future, and I have been doing it with some great staff and a relaxed environment surrounding me. It has its highs and lows, but overall the Detroit office of Cohen and Company has been good to me in these first weeks of the Internship.

Cohen has also given me an opportunity to see the Detroit area. With the office right in downtown I can try a lot of different place for lunch. We also happen to be right next to Campus Martius so I can dine in style on a nice day. The after 5 program also gave me the opportunity to crawl around Midtown which actually showed me some great places to get some good food and drinks.

Overall it’s been a great experience and they truly do live by their “Work hard, have fun” mentality. I am looking forward to progressing and learning more with the firm in the coming weeks.
