The Gauntlet is an opportunity for students that allows them to undergo the various stages of recruiting in one setting.
There are three components to the Gauntlet, each lasts about 20 minutes. The first component is the resume critique, followed by a mock Meet the Firms experience, and finishing up with a mock interview. The Summer Gauntlet takes place near the end of the summer and is meant to be an event where students can get exposure to the main components of the recruiting season in a low-pressure environment. The Summer Gauntlet is only for upperclassmen looking for internships or full-time positions. The event is staffed by accounting professionals (the same ones who will be attending the Meet the Firms event). Thus, the event is invaluable in that it gives you face-time with many accounting professionals in an environment where mistakes or unrefined resumes are completely acceptable.
