Michael LaNue is a recent graduate who studied Accounting and is now working at RSM US in Denver, CO.
Why did you choose to work for RSM? After participating in numerous different networking events (Meet the Firms, Beta, Career Days) I knew I wanted to begin my career in public accounting. After completing externships with various public accounting firms in Phoenix last summer, I knew RSM was the right fit based off of their culture and employees.
Tell us about your job responsibilities and title. I am currently a Consulting Associate within the Risk Advisory Services group in Downtown Denver. As a member of the RAS group, our end goal is to create a “SOC” report for our client. This report provides our client with an outside assessment of their internal controls that they can provide to their clients for assurance.
What do you enjoy most about working at RSM? The best part about working at RSM so far has been meeting my new coworkers and seeing all of the opportunity that exists both inside and outside of our firm.
What is your fondest Eller memory? Fondest Eller memory would have to be coming and taking pictures on the front steps after graduation… ELLER WE MADE IT.
What advice to you have for Eller students seeking a similar career path? Network every day and trust yourself. If you know what you want to do following graduation, I guarantee that you can hunt down an opportunity.
