Campus Recruiting Manager

What do you love most about working at Elliott Davis?

"I appreciate the growth opportunities given to me over the course of my tenure with Elliott Davis. I have held six totally different roles during my time with the firm. Each time, as my skill sets have grown and adapted, the firm has allowed me to pivot those skills into something new that benefits my personal growth as well as the firm’s growth."

Best piece of advice for prospective candidates?

"Be yourself! Be candid about what you want and showcase your best self. Be sure you aren’t trying to fit yourself into whatever version you think the employer wants as an ill-fitting role in the beginning doesn’t become better with time – it simply leads to burnout and disappointment in the long run."

Sarah Brams

Senior Campus Recruiter

Best piece of advice for prospective candidates?

April Jasmin

Campus Recruiting Specialist

What do you love most about working at Elliott Davis?

"My favorite part about working at Elliott Davis is the flexibility. I have always felt encouraged to spend time away from work when needed which is really refreshing. Being able to take the time I need to disconnect from work allows me to come back recharged and more focused."

Best piece of advice for prospective candidates?

"Take time to shop around. Connect with as many firms and people within those firms, in order to give you a good grasp of where you see yourself fitting best. Any firm you interact with, you will likely end up doing the same job as an accountant, but what matters most is how each experience and person you interact with within the firm makes you feel."

Blake Morgan

Campus Recruiter

What do you love most about working at Elliott Davis?

"Working in an environment that is driven by making positive impacts for its people and community."

Best piece of advice for prospective candidates?

"Try to have as many conversations as possible with professionals. This will only help solidify when you find the right “fit” for your professional journey. There are many ways to meet talented folks from one organization. Attend as many recruiting events as your schedule allows, or just reach out to your local Campus Recruiter for guidance."

Bliss Zechman
