Michelle student spotlight


During my last semester at SJR State, I was completing my A.S. degree in Accounting Technology and was strongly encouraged to take part in an internship. One of my professors at the time knew of a CPA firm that was hiring, as it was soon to be tax season. Carr, Riggs & Ingram was willing to take me on as an intern that spring. Therefore, I was learning, firsthand, about tax season in the workplace while I was also taking a tax class at SJR State.
