Meet the Firms is a career fair-style, networking and recruiting event that connects students with professionals and recruiters in the accounting profession. We host representatives from the Big Four, mid-size, and regional firms.
The event allows students and professionals to mingle and gain a sense of familiarity with one another. It is crucial for students to get face time and meaningful conversations with as many professionals as possible.
If you are a student who is unsure about the profession, MTF is a great way to get to know what the industry is all about.
We host three Meet the Firms events during the school year: two in the Fall, and one in the Winter.
Summer + Fall Meet the Firms
This year we will be having a Summer and Fall Meet the Firms, as they are one of the most important events to attend if you are a third or fourth year student interested in internships or full-time opportunities. However, all grade levels are welcome to attend. In the past, this Meet the Firms brought approximately 500 students and over 35 firms under one roof.
Hosting two Meet the Firms events ensures that students network with professionals before firms’ application deadlines–some of which take place before students return to campus. Students are able and strongly encouraged to attend both events.
The 2023 Summer Meet the Firms will take place Tuesday, September 12 from 3:00-6:00pm via Zoom. The 2023 Fall Meet the Firms will take place on Friday, October 6th and Friday, October 13th from 3:00pm to 6:00pm on campus at the Loma Pelona Center. You must be a 2023-24 UAS Member to register.
Winter Meet the Firms
Firms attending Winter Meet the Firms are generally seeking to find first-year and second-year students interested in Freshman Programs or internships that will take place the summer after their third year. However, all students are welcome to attend. Some firms will also still be recruiting for full-time offers. In the past, this Meet the Firms brought approximately 300 students and over 20 firms under one roof.
The 2023 Winter Meet the Firms will take place over two dates: Friday, January 20th and Friday, January 27th, both from 3:00-6:00pm. You must be a 2022-23 All-Access member to register.
