Redlands accounting students take their careers seriously, and this typically means that they start investigating possible jobs as soon as they join the program. A large number of speakers invited to campus by the Redlands Accounting Society, as well as several "Meet the Firms" events, internships and volunteer experiences all help students understand different types of accounting careers.
Recent graduates have started their careers with prestigious positions at the following:
Eadie and Payne
Ernst and Young
Internal Revenue Service
Maryanov Madsen Gordan Campbell
Naval Audit Service
RSM US LLP
Soren McAdams Christenson
Vavrinek, Trine and Day
The list above details the first jobs of five years of graduates, and shows that most of our alumni start their careers at large CPA firms, mostly in audit positions. But we also have alumni consulting, at governmental agencies, in industry, and, yes, one missionary!

He made sure to take advantage of speakers on campus and other professional events to network and understand the accounting profession. After a successful internship at a Big 4 firm between his junior and senior year, he went into the fall semester of his senior year with job offer in hand.
