In May we hosted our annual Beacon Summer Leadership series, a unique program designed for accounting students to experience what a career in public accounting is like. Now in its 7th year, Beacon attracted more than 30 students representing universities throughout the southeast for two days of teambuilding and education in our Tampa and Pensacola, Florida offices. 

Schools represented this year include:

Students were invited to meet our team, learn about our culture and how we do things The Saltmarsh Way and participated in mini-sessions focused on practical topics like personal branding and tips to prepare for the CPA exam. The program concluded with experiential learning opportunities to explore a ‘day in the life’ of our tax and audit staff followed by interviews for internship opportunities and a gameshow competition.

“We’re very proud of how well-attended our programs were this year. Beacon is a dynamic and immersive learning experience that showcases the special culture we have here at Saltmarsh and plays an important part in identifying emerging talent within the profession. Students expressed how they felt ‘at home’ and thought it was informative, entertaining and memorable. We are eager to see many of them again as future interns and new staff,” said Director of People Development, Mel Kleinert.

We look forward to welcoming a new Beacon class into our firm each year. This program has helped some of the best and brightest find a home at Saltmarsh and we appreciate all who contribute to making it a success!
