Excited to get a jump start on your career? Curious what it's like inside the world of public accounting and Plante Moran in particular? We thought you might be. That's why we started Plante Moran Expo, a one-day leadership conference where you'll gain exposure to the firm and the services we provide to our clients.
An invitation-only event, Expo is typically held in the summer in multiple areas around the Midwest, including Chicagoland, Metro Detroit, West Michigan, and Ohio. Its goal is simple: introduce students to one of the nation’s largest professional services firms — and one of its best places to work. Together with some of our staff, including summer interns, you'll have a chance to use your business skills and prior work experience to showcase your strengths and talents. You may even discover new career opportunities you hadn't considered.

Expo includes all kinds of activities, from speed-networking with staff from our different service groups, to attending a panel where new Plante Moran hires share their campus-to-career experience, to getting to know your fellow Expo participants during fun outings.
Kerry, who works in audit in our Chicago office, had this to say: "I participated in Expo the summer before my sophomore year, and the fact that Plante Moran was willing to invest in me as a freshman — I hadn't even taken an accounting class yet! — really impressed me and stuck with me. The job-shadow experience during Expo helped me see what a public accounting firm does and that Plante offers more service lines beyond the standard audit and tax. Expo also led me to interview for Challenge, and that led me to two internships, which led to a full-time position. Expo was the perfect introduction to Plante Moran."
