Fast-Track Your Career Potential

RBG is looking for highly motivated students who are interested in a public accounting career at one of the Mid-South’s most reputable firms.

What is Accelerate Leadership?

Accelerate Leadership is a one-day virtual conference for select college students who have declared a major in accounting. Students who attend Accelerate Leadership will get to know Memphis and RBG through entertainment, education, and networking events. Participants will attend the program compliments of RBG.

When and where does Accelerate Leadership take place?

We plan for Accelerate Leadership to be held February 11-12, 2022, in Memphis, Tennessee. Should the conference need to be held virtually, we will let those attending the conference know, although the dates should stay the same.

What’s on the agenda?

Live: Participants will tour downtown Memphis attractions while getting to know some of our young professionals. That evening, students will have a chance to network with more of our professionals while enjoying dinner at one of our unique Memphis restaurants. The next day, the networking will continue with a breakfast mixer and panel discussions, and the day will conclude with an interview for one of our spring or summer internships. 

Virtual: Participants will interact with RBG's Young Professional Group through a variety of events allowing for networking, unique and informational sessions, and a Q&A. Participants will also get to hear from some of RBG's Partners and Managers. The conference will conclude with an internship interview for each participant.

Am I eligible?

Students are eligible to participate in Accelerate Leadership if they are a standing sophomore or beyond and have declared a major in accounting.

How do I apply?

To apply for the conference, please email Mary Apple at mapple@rbgcpa.com with your resume and an unofficial transcript. The deadline to apply is January 15, 2022.
