Recruitment for 2015 Accounting Jobs & Internships starts this July.  RSVP for the Summer Accounting Recruitment Readiness Workshops sponsored by the Big 4 Accounting Firms. These workshops are designed to help you transform yourself into the accounting-ready professional that large and mid-size firms are seeking and help you gain a competitive edge for the 2014-2015 accounting recruiting season (see important dates below).

Attend one of the all NEW recruitment readiness workshops and learn how to:

  • Quickly and effectively communicate a clear professional objective in a way that meets a firm’s need;
  • Share relevant experience in a clear, concise, and compelling way (and connect it to their targeted position);
  • Carry an initial conversation with a firm associate or partner;
  • Begin and end a conversation with a firm handshake and great eye contact.
  • Enjoy a comfortable connection to you and your firm before Firm Tours (recruitment) begin
