KEVIN HOOD’s Internship with Shaheen, Pallone & Associates
For Kevin Hood ’15, having a Merrimack internship in a CPA office provided him insight on the career path he would like to pursue – accounting.
His internship at Shaheen, Pallone & Associates, P.C. gave him the opportunity to connect with two Merrimack alums, Bill Shaheen ’76 and John Pallone ’77, and to understand how to use classroom theory in real-life applications. In addition to using new software programs, he filed tax extensions and received hands-on experience in assisting with client profiles.
“My experience working in a CPA office during peak tax season taught me more about taxes, the laws behind taxes, and the science of taxes than I could ever have learned in a book.”
Next up for Kevin, an internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers to further his interest and experience in accounting.
