Meet the Firms / Career Fairs
The SCU Accounting Association and the Accounting Department organize career fairs for students interested in accounting careers.
Fall Meet-The-Firms Night
At the beginning of the Fall Quarter, the SCU Accounting Association hosts its annual "Fall Meet-The-Firms" (MTF) Night. This event unites SCU accounting students with potential employers who wish to hire them. This event is considered the most important recruiting event of the year and all SCU accounting majors and CAAP students are encouraged to attend. Dress for the event is formal business attire (suits and ties). Employers who attend the event receive a resume booklet that includes resumes from all students interested in pursuing a career in accounting. Students who wish to include their resumes in the booklet must submit their resumes in a prescribed format to the SCU Accounting Association by a deadline that occurs a few days before the event. In the weeks before MTF Night, the SCU Accounting Association sponsors a number of workshops designed to help students make a good impression at Fall MTF Night.
CAAP Accounting Career Fairs
In connection with the CAAP program, the Accounting Department organizes career fairs for its Summer and Weekend CAAP students. These recruiting events are opportunities for CAAP students to meet with companies that are interested in hiring students with accounting skills. Many of the companies that attend the Meet-The-Firms Nights also attend these events. Dress for the event is business casual. Employers who attend the event receive a resume booklet that includes resumes from all students interested in pursuing employment with one of the recruiting firms. Students who wish to include their resumes in the booklet must submit their resumes in a prescribed format to the Accounting Department’s administrative assistant by a deadline that occurs a few days before the event. Prior to the Career Fair, CAAP students are provided with a resume workshop as well as one-on-one resume counseling for assistance preparing their resumes.
