Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I am currently a junior majoring in accounting at a major university three miles away from home.
After having failed to land an internship at one of the Big Four accounting firms this summer (had one interview with KPMG, no offers), I have decided to take a more radical path to seeking employment this summer. In the past hour, I have compiled a list of 20 local accounting/tax preparation firms, ranging from one-man operations to slightly bigger operations comprising of a few dozen people. Tomorrow afternoon, when I get home from school, I'll be calling three to four firms for internships and remind the person/partner on the other line that it's tax season, and I will be very happy to work for free.
I've never done this before, but I believe that this is the best way for me to land an internship of some kind this summer so that I am a bit more competitive come full-time recruiting next fall.
Has anyone cold called for work before? Did it work for you?
