Hi Nicole!


Great question! The recruitment process varies by school, so I would start but asking your Career Center or college adviser if there are any planned days for career fairs on campus. If so, I would definitely clean up your resume and get ready for those days! Hopefully a connection will lead to an interview in the future. If your school does not offer this resource, I would suggest getting your name out there via LinkedIn. Many recruiters and firms are using LinkedIn to search for applicants.

Nicole’s Answer

Great question! For the most part, many companies will come to campus and hold a career fair or some type of networking event prior to accepting applications and holding interviews. It is really important to attend these events and network as much as possible. Getting to know the campus recruiters is the best way to have companies recruit you as you are completing your degree. Also make sure that your LinkedIn is up to date with your interests and academic accomplishments. After recruiting events, it is common for the recruiters to go look up people they have met or received applications from.

Good luck!

Rachel’s Answer

Just to add to what others have said, in addition to reaching out to your college's resources (Career Center etc.) you should check if there are any Accounting clubs/societies at your school. If there are, you should join them! They tend to have a lot of information specific to recruiting in your college in your area, and they can help you learn how to be a better candidate.

Personally, I was a member of Beta Alpha Psi and I got my internship with PwC (where I now work full time) largely because of what I learned there. Another common society is the Student Accounting Society, so you should check for both organizations at your college. I am not sure if there are international chapters of these specific organizations, but there is probably something similar if there isn't.

Corey’s Answer

I would say that most companies recruit on campus before you receive your degree. If the firms are recruiting on your campus, I would recommend going to as many of the events as possible so you can meet all the firms and decide which ones you like best. If this is not something that happens on your campus, I would recommend joining the accounting club or Beta Alpha Psi if they are on your campus as they might have connections to the firms through alumni of the club or club events that occur.


Good luck in our studies and career!

Gothami’s Answer

Anyone looking for a job would go through the regular interview process. When the time comes, make sure you research the company you are interviewing and are ready to answer any questions they have. Obtaining an internship will also be beneficial because it will give you an opportunity to network with individuals in the company. Many are able to get a fulltime job with the company they intern with because of the relationship they have already built.

Adiam’s Answer

Yes, most colleges have career fairs that bring in accounting firms and companies looking to hire accountants. I would reach out to your college's Career Center or your advisor to find out what career opportunities exist.
