Accounting Majors: Meet the Firms

Accounting majors:

FYI. Below is an email that might be of interest to you that I received today from Wiley - one of the big publishers of accounting texts:
Are your students looking for accounting internships or entry-level accounting jobs?

Encourage them to attend National Meet the Firms Week - February 9-13, 2015.

Registration is free:

Wiley CPAexcel and WileyPlus are excited to host National Meet the Firms Week with Accountingfly.

Meet the Firms Week is a free virtual recruitment event. To participate, students create a free profile and upload their resume. Then with one click they can apply to jobs and internships. They'll also be included in our Resume Drop; once the event wraps we will literally drop their Accountingfly profile in the hands of all participating firms in your state!

Students who take part will be eligible to win a $500 scholarship and are invited to attend an entire virtual week of insightful webinars from industry pros to help them make the most of their accounting career.

Webinar Schedule: February 9-13, 2015
