This Accounting Student Is So Desperate For an Internship He’s Hitting Tinder to Find One

OK look, I’m old and spent my entire 30s in the same relationship so I don’t know a thing about Tinder other than what I’ve heard from friends and seen posted in meme form. There’s swiping involved, I know that. Man, you kids don’t know how good you have it. Back in my day, we had to walk uphill in the fog both ways just to hook up with some grungy guy of dubious sexuality with too many roommates we met at some San Francisco bar reeking of peanut shells and regurgitated Fernet.

Whew, bad memories. Back to modern day. So, it’s already been established that although jobs in accounting are as plentiful as greasy bisexual guys at an SF bar, the competition is heating up. I never thought I’d see the day when firms would start requiring more than a heartbeat and a degree, but here we are. While we could argue all day long how realistic it is for firms to want accounting grads who are fluent in no less than three programming languages and also double as a motivational speaker, that’s not what we’re here to discuss. We’re here to talk about this genius.
