"Working as a research assistant under Prof. George Joseph for this project has been a great experience for me. The main goal of this co-op was for me to understand research concepts and literature reviews. Other goals are to become familiar with research concepts involving different journals, different search engines, search terms, and topics within journals. I also learned to develop the basic ability to carry out a literature search, including identifying journals, search techniques and articles, as well as communicating research through developing literature review and referencing sources. In addition, I have developed the basic ability to work with research databases in management and accounting. We have looked at facts and done comparisons among different accounting certifications. Lastly, we are working to understand and familiarize with Capital IQ by developing the ability to explore, download and extract data."
