Jill Ferrall, associate dean for career development in the School of Business at Quinnipiac University, was quoted in the Hartford Business Journal about the success accounting graduates are having securing jobs.
Quinnipiac’s Class of 2012 reported a 100 percent placement of graduates. Some of the university’s full-time and internship employers consisting of BlumShapiro, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, McGladrey and United Technologies, Ferrall said.
“I believe there is a hot market for accountants because coupled with the fact that every company needs accountants, they graduate from college ready, willing and trained with the knowledge they need to perform their actual jobs,” Ferrall said. “They are well prepared to hit the ground running.”
