Preparing Sophomores for a Successful Career in Accounting

The first Sophomore Accounting Career Fair was held in 2018 in recognition of the importance of early relationship building and career opportunities for sophomores.

On February 15, 2018, SCU held its first career fair for sophomores interested in learning about CPA firm summer leadership programs and internships. Fifty-two students met with representatives from 14 CPA firms, including Abbott Stringham & Lynch, Andersen Tax, Armanino, BDO, BPM, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Frank, Rimerman + Co., KPMG, Moss Adams, Novogradac, PwC, RSM, and Sensiba San Filippo.  We created this new Career Fair in recognition that firm recruitment of undergraduate Accounting and A&IS majors has evolved to the point that a significant percentage of CPA firm internship hiring occurs in connection with their summer leadership programs for sophomores.

The career fair lasted from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in Locatelli Center. Several of the firms returned during the week of March 5-9 to interview these students for positions in their summer leadership and diversity internship programs. The career fair was a success, and we plan to hold our second Accounting Sophomore Career Fair in February 2018.
