Summer is a great time to update your resume. If you are looking for some active verbs to incorporate into resume bullet points, check out this article for three strong word options.
Check out this article featured on the NIU homepage about Dr. West’s ACCY 679 debates! Here’s a preview:
“The link between debate and accounting, West said, is the ability to communicate effectively in the changing business world where accounting professionals are valued according to their ability to communicate and their critical thinking skills. Through this project, West hopes to prepare his students by combining traditional education with innovative methods that have practical use in their futures.”
Happy Wednesday, LMAS students! Check out Jen’s follow-up thoughts on the Q Center launch (as well as more pics of you all working through the challenges).
It’s hard to believe that we are almost two weeks into the summer session. Time flies when you’re having fun. I really enjoyed meeting everyone at the Q Center, and I look forward to seeing you today or Thursday in the Professional Written Communications workshop. Continue Reading →
Welcome to our new LMAS students! Jen, Jeff, Jerry, and I hope that you all had a wonderful time at the Q Center launch yesterday. Here’s a brief recap from Jerry along with some action shots of your team challenges. You can also check back next week for some follow-up thoughts from Jen.
I had a great time meeting you all at the LMAS launch yesterday at the Q Center. The Q Center staff did a wonderful job of getting the energy up early and keeping it high all day. This made interaction with all of you even more enjoyable. Getting to know some of you during the activities was a fun experience for me throughout the day. The drag racer building activity was particularly enjoyable, and seeing you compete through the planks puzzle was very entertaining.
