Sean McCaskill, Accounting

One bachelor’s degree was not enough for Sean McCaskill.  After graduating in 2009 with a finance degree, he came back to USF to pursue a degree in accounting.  He has immersed himself in extracurricular programs offered by the School of Accountancy, so much so, in fact, that he has been invited to serve on its student advisory council. In addition, McCaskill, who has received two Student Excellence Grants, worked as a teaching assistant for two semesters.

Formerly an officer for the Student Finance Association, McCaskill is now a member of Beta Alpha Psi, an accounting honors organization.  In addition, McCaskill participates in events for the American Heart Association, participates in breast cancer walks, and volunteers for both Junior Achievement, an educational program, and Clothes for Kids, a non-profit organization in Clearwater.  Not one to sit still, McCaskill launched a yacht detailing business in 2007.

McCaskill, who took and passed the level one Certified Financial Analyst exam, plans to take the CFA level two exam in 2012, after he passes the exam to become a Certified Public Accountant.  He has completed internships at Levin Financial, Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, and KPMG.  The full-time KPMG internship led to a job offer, so McCaskill will begin work as an auditor with KPMG in August.
