Dear Karen, I am a junior at DePaul University studying accounting. I am currently working as an intern at ABC Company. I wanted to see if you have any advice on how to make sure that I maximize my time at the internship. I found your profile in the ASK directory and I see that you completed two accounting internships before you graduated. Would you be willing to share your experience with me and offer some advice?
