Meet the Firms 2017
Each fall, the Santa Clara University Accounting Association (SCUAA) organizes an accounting career fair (titled “Meet-The-Firms Night”) for SCU students seeking full-time and internship positions at CPA firms and Silicon Valley corporations. The event traditionally occurs during the second week of the fall quarter (immediately before the week that students must submit resumes for fall on-campus interviews). For many students and firms, this evening represents the most important networking opportunity of the academic year.
This year’s 36th Annual Meet-The-Firms Night took place on Thursday, September 28th, 2017 between 6:00 and 9:00 pm. At this year’s event, 137 students met with professional representatives from 26 firms in SCU’s Locatelli Center. About half of the students attending the event were either recent graduates or newly admitted students to the CAAP program. The other student attendees were comprised of undergraduate sophomores, juniors, and seniors from the Accounting, Accounting Information Systems, Finance and OMIS programs.
Locatelli Center never looked better, as the hall was brightly-lighted and well-decorated. We provided a buffet dinner for firm representatives, as well as beverages, appetizers, and light desserts for students. Overall, the event was well received by firm participants and received high approval ratings from the students. Please find photos of the event here.
We sincerely thank all the firms that participated in Firms attending the event include:
