KPMG Hosts COB Students in a Day of Networking and Fashion

Governors State University College of Business Accounting students Brittany Sims, Kajal Shah, and Jared Dandridge recently attended a day of professional coaching, interactive sessions, and fashion at the Chicago campus of KPMG, a global firm that provides audit, tax and advisory services.

The firm hosted Advance with KPMG Chicago 2019 to encourage traditionally underrepresented students who are have expressed an interest in pursuing an internship or full-time opportunity with KPMG, which generously provided transportation from the student’s campus to the Chicago office or reimbursements for cost of transportation.

The day began with a light breakfast, followed by lunch during which students were coached on proper table etiquette. A KPMG employee was seated at every table and shared coveted tips to eager students. After lunch, employees hit the runway dressed in fashionable business attire modeling to beats provided by a fashionable KPMG auditor.

Employees ended the day by rotating students through sessions where they learned about networking and social media. They also were treated to professional head shots.

GSU students joined others from across the Midwest for the event.
