UAS coordinates recruiting events with the Economics department’s Career Connection office to connect students with career opportunities. The Career Connection office is open Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. for drop-in hours and from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. by appointment only, during which students can have resumes critiqued, check CPA requirements or have any questions about the recruiting process answered.
Many transfer students choose to begin the recruiting process immediately upon entering UCSB because third-year students are heavily sought after for summer internships. Transfer students are excellent candidates for many of these summer positions and for any other positions firms seek to fill.
Meet the Firms is the largest networking event of the year and is the beginning of the recruiting season. Transfer students are encouraged to attend. To learn more about Meet the Firms visit our Events page and our Eventbrite registration page. Students should apply for jobs and internships using Gaucholink. Be sure to mark the deadlines for applications on your calendar as many immediately follow Meet the Firms. Many firms host socials and on-campus interviews throughout the remainder of the quarter.
Fall quarter is the busiest time of year for UAS and for Econ/Accounting majors. It is important to stay updated by following the UAS Facebook page, Announcements and Events pages. In order to better prepare for fall recruiting, we recommend immediately preparing a resume and updating LinkedIn. For resources on preparing a resume, click here.
Throughout the year, we invite you to join us for our regularly scheduled Weekly Meetings on Wednesday nights, where we host firms or hold workshops to give you a chance to network and further refine your brand (food is always provided!). Please also join us for regularly scheduled events including socials and networking events.
