Internship Success - Chiampou Travis Besaw & Kershner

Alan Peunic, a senior accounting major from Lewiston, N.Y., interned as a Tax/Audit/Business Valuation Intern at Chiampou Travis Besaw & Kershner (CTBK) and secured a full-time position for after graduation before he started his senior year at NU.

How did you secure the opportunity?

I secured this opportunity through the CTBK Lead Summit Program.

What did you do on a daily basis?

I worked on tax projects, foreign returns, audits, and business valuation projects.

Most importantly, what did you learn?

I learned more in-depth tax, audit, and business valuation material, but most importantly I learned how to communicate and work in a team setting. 

What advice do you have for future students?

Never give up. Be compassionate. Be willing to learn. Know that the failures are just as important as the successes. Have fun. 

How did NU's Office of Career Services help you?

Career Services helped me out with my resume, the interview process with CTBK, and the events and lead summit program which eventually gave me the opportunity that I have now.
