Albertson, NY – March 14, 2014 – Students from the Henry Viscardi School (HVS) at The Viscardi Center and the NYC Academies recently visited and participated in Job Shadowing Day at the accounting offices of Ernst & Young (EY) in New York City.
John Sasso, Northeast Leader of AccessAbilities, EY’s professional resource network focused on enabling people of all abilities to do their best work, was instrumental in bringing this event to its fruition and including students from HVS.
Twenty-six students from both schools experienced a day in the life of EY by visiting with professionals from EY’s many Volunteer groups, touring departments in areas related to Tax, Advisory, and Assurance, and listening to speakers offer insight into EY’s AccessAbilities and Corporate Responsibility groups. Students attended a series of presentations with employees from different departments who spoke about their role with the organization.

Students were included in a roundtable discussion that featured current and former interns of EY who spoke about their experiences. [Read more…]
