Each year our Meet the Firms Event is attended by accounting students, faculty, alumni, and representatives from public accounting firms, private industry, and government. This is a great opportunity where students will be able to network with professionals from numerous different firms!
For freshmen, this is an opportunity for you to stand out and be noticed by the firms before recruiting season even begins. Firms are beginning to put forth more programs catered to freshmen, and this gives you an opportunity to get to know the industry very early on in your college career.
For sophomores, attending Meet the Firms is an opportunity for you to build a relationship with recruiters from firms in preparation for Summer Leadership Programs. You will be able to speak to professionals from public accounting firms, consulting firms, as well as the government departments to see what career tracks are available to you.
For juniors, if you did not attend a summer leadership program this past summer, then attending Meet the Firms is a crucial opportunity for you to land an internship for next summer. Most of the firms hire interns during this semester. By making connections with professionals and recruiters at this event, you enable them to get to know you outside of a formal interview setting. They may also provide you with more opportunities to network at their invite-only socials!
For seniors, this is your last year at LMU, and most of you are thinking about your post-grad plans. For those of you who are still looking for jobs, the firms attending are also looking to hire LMU students for full-time positions. Some firms may even be looking for winter interns!
For non-members, the fee to attend is $10 during pre-registration. For members of the Accounting Society, the event is free, contingent on your submission of a membership application and dues.
To register for the event, please follow the link above.
We hope to see you all there!
