The Gauntlet is an opportunity for students that allows them to undergo the various stages of recruiting in one setting. For the first time in 2021 due to popular demand, UAS will be hosting the Gauntlet in the Winter Quarter for underclassmen searching for Freshman Programs and Summer Leadership Programs.
There are three components to the Winter Gauntlet, each lasts about 25 minutes. The first component is the Resume Critique, followed by a Mock Meet the Firms experience, and finishing up with a Mock Interview. The Gauntlet takes place in the beginning of the Winter quarter 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 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.
The 2021 Winter Gauntlet will take place on Friday, January 15th from 1:00 - 5:35 pm. Sign-ups are now open— see below for instructions on how to register and here for even more details.
