On Thursday, May 25, KRS hosted four Paramus High School juniors as part of the Paramus Rotary Club’s 31st Annual Career Day. Senior accountants Diane Pineda and Lance Aligo gave students Andrew Del Monico, Parth Patel, Chloe Lee and Eric Abreu a tour of the KRS offices and a presentation about the accounting world. Afterwards, they all attended a luncheon with other program participants at the Seasons Restaurant in Washington Township.
“We enjoyed giving Andrew, Parth, Chloe and Eric the opportunity to see what accountants do on a day-to-day basis. I think they left here with a better understanding of what a career as a CPA can offer,” commented Aligo.
Added Pineda, “While the students were here, they also participated in Red Nose Day, which was a fun way for them to see that at KRS, giving back to the community is an important part of our culture.”
The Paramus Rotary Club’s Career Day was started in 1986 as a way to connect high school students with businesses in the local community. This year, 275 Paramus High School juniors visited area businesses and organizations of their choice and experienced “real life” with leaders who own or manage those businesses or organizations.
