Bennett Thrasher proudly hosted 40 students for the 7th annual Break Through summer leadership conference at our offices in Atlanta, GA the first week of June. These students represented 14 different universities across the country and were exposed to a multitude of topics and networking events with BT associates and partners during the conference.
Students gained knowledge regarding tax vs. audit and other specialty consulting lines which accountants can move into during their career. They had a chance to get to know the firm and obtain career advice from Bennett Thrasher founders, Rick Bennett and Ken Thrasher, as well as learn networking and interviewing tips during the sessions. Students also had the opportunity to get to know BT associates through a social at The Battery and by volunteering to make 1,000 sandwiches for Clyde’s Kitchen with the Bennett Thrasher Foundation.
“Summer leadership conferences are an important part of the recruitment process for students, as it allows them to get to know a firm in a more relaxed setting and truly experience the culture of that firm before going through the rush of fall recruiting. We encourage students to go to as many as possible so they can understand the difference in Big 4, regional and local firms and the unique experiences that each firm offers.”
