To whom this my concern,
I was accepted into Fisher a couple of weeks back, and I was able to get into my specialization of choice (Accounting), but I have a few questions that I was hoping one of my fellow Buckeyes (or accountants in general) could answer. I'll begin taking my core business courses in the fall, but when should I start looking for internships? I'm not sure if I should be done with a couple of my core accounting courses first, or if it would be fine to get an internship now over the summer. Also, how does a typical internship work, should I already have a high level of accounting knowledge before applying for internships? Also, is there any advice you could give me that you wish you would of known when you were in college? I'm also curious, is getting an MBA necessary for an accountant, or would a CPA suffice.
Thanks for any help you can give!
