FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Answers You Need
IS CPA RECRUIT FOR UPPER YEAR STUDENTS?
No, definitely not! We encourage students to start networking with firms as early as possible so that they can feel confident and comfortable in a networking setting, learn about the different career opportunities available, and start building meaningful relationships with firm representatives.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
We strongly recommend that students attend as many networking events as possible. CPA Recruit is your opportunity to get to learn about the different firms and the opportunities they offer. We will be hosting a number of events throughout recruit to help students get a sense of each firm and find out where they "fit". Some firms will also host their own events so join our mailing list to avoid missing out!
WHAT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?
Be yourself! Bring an open mind, positive attitude, and willingness to learn to each event as well as your own business cards. Dress codes can vary from business casual to business formal depending on the event so make sure that you understand the differences and have the proper attire.
AM I GUARANTEED A JOB PLACEMENT IF I PARTICIPATE?
Unfortunately, not everyone will be successful the first time they participate in CPA Recruit; it may take some students two or three times before they are successful in finding a position. There are numerous factors that can affect a student's ability to secure a co-op or full-time positions such as the number of positions available, the quantity and quality of applicants, and the student's ability to establish meaningful connections with firm representatives.
