I'm generally not a big fan of accountant jokes, but hey, we
all need to laugh at ourselves sometimes, right? Here are a few

At my last seminar someone asked, "Can I get a cell using a data
validation list to show the drop down arrow even when the

Looking for internships for Summer 2009
I will be entering my junior year of college next year, and I would like to find an internship for next summer in public accounting. This summer I am working as a staff temp in the accounts receivable department of a non-profit educational institution to gain experience. My gpa is a 3.8, and so far I've had four accounting courses, so I think I can get an internship. When would be the best time to start looking for internships for next summer? Should I contact the firms or use monstertrak.com, collegecentral.com, etc.? Do the internships usually offer credit? Respond Now
