Balancing activities, academics, and career preparation
As an intern at KPMG, a Boston accounting firm, Jamie gained professional experience and even landed a job offer before completing her junior year of college.
When Jamie Zompa began her demanding internship with KPMG, a prestigious accounting firm, she felt that she had “flipped a switch overnight” from college life to the adult working world where she joined a high-powered auditing team serving a broad client base. Her hours were long and often involved travel; however, Zompa credits the strong academic and professional preparation she received at Endicott with her ability to meet the company’s high expectations. In order to earn the 150 credit hours required to sit for the CPA exam, Zompa took six courses every semester along with summer classes, and all of this while serving as captain of the tennis team and maintaining a 3.95 grade point average. It is no wonder that KPMG was eager to have Jamie join the auditing team full-time when she graduated in May of 2017.
