Over the past few years, Geenen & Kolean has had several interns during tax season. We thought it would be fun to catch up with a couple former interns to see where they are now.
Jenni Laarman was our Tax Intern from January 2013 to April 2013. She worked at Geenen & Kolean as a Staff Accountant from April 2013 to June 2014.
Q: What are you doing now?
A: I am a Financial Analyst at Haworth.
Q: How did your internship experience at GK prepare you for your career?
A: I felt I received a wide variety of challenges which gave me a variety of experience for my career.
Q: What would you tell prospective interns about our culture at GK?
A: Tax season is rough and there is no getting around that in public accounting; however, when you are surrounded with a great working environment even the most stressful season does not seem so bad. I enjoyed the close-knit culture I feel you do not always get at large companies.
Q: What was your fondest memory of working at GK?
A: The people! It was truly a great group of people to learn from and build friendships with.
