Message from fellow classmate – Job Opportunity

Hey guys,

I have recently been applying for spring internships and came into contact with an accounting firm located in Center City Philadelphia. The name of the firm is Drucker & Scaccetti and they are looking for a Temporary Electronic Filing Coordinator for the 2015 tax season. The position is full time. If there are any Accounting majors interested in applying please email me and let me know. It seems like a great opportunity! I can try to answer any questions you may have and forward your resume to the firm’s recruiter.
