CollegeFrog Inc. Launches National Meet the Firms Week
CollegeFrog, Inc., along with leading accounting industry partners, announced today the launch of National Meet The Firms Week, a virtual accounting-recruiting event that runs Oct. 29-Nov. 2.
National Meet The Firms Week is an online event that allows hundreds of accounting firms nationwide to meet thousands of student job seekers, and it gives students the opportunity to distribute their resumes to hiring firms at no cost to the firms or students. The event includes a schedule of valuable educational seminars for accounting students, such as a CPA exam planning session taught by a leading exam expert and an inside look at careers in regional and local accounting firms.
“Accounting firms want to identify top accounting students in a cost-effective way,” said Jeff Phillips, CEO of CollegeFrog. “National Meet The Firms Week gives employers the opportunity to find students from around the country who might be interested in working with their firm. We have an incredible group of partners who have put together an outstanding event and we are proud to be their co-sponsor.”
Colleges with accounting majors traditionally host Meet The Firm events—career fairs where students can interact with representatives from hiring firms. However, firms that are eager to find the best available talent may not always be able to afford to travel to multiple campuses.
Students and firms may go to www.meetthefirmsweek.com to register. CollegeFrog is joined by partners Accounting Today, Sage, iShade, ThisWayToCPA.com, the Association of Accounting Administrators and Becker Professional Education. Students receive gifts for registering, such as 0% financing on Becker’s CPA exam course, and are entered into raffles for other prizes, such as an entry to win a Sony Bloggie Video Cam from ThisWayToCPA.com. For a full list of benefits for registering, students and firms can go to MeetTheFirmsWeek.com.
