Kim Letch, an assurance services partner for Ernst & Young, spoke about the importance of globalization in a changing world at the Titan Student Union Monday.
When applying for an international company, Letch emphasized that applicants should know where they want to go in both the business and geographical world.
Ernst & Young is one of the largest professional service firms in the world.
Letch referred to herself as a “global citizen” after living in various cities during her 20 years with Ernst & Young. She also encouraged other students to embrace travel when offered the opportunity.
Traveling will help people diversify their life experiences and their professional experiences, said Letch. She added that this is invaluable to international companies.
With ideas spreading across the globe quicker than ever, Letch said Ernst & Young wants to hire a team of people who are passionate about keeping up with the needs of their global and ever growing clients.
Letch offered one piece of advice to Ernst & Young hopefuls: “Know what you’re getting into. Do your homework and research.”
