ANNUAL ACCOUNTING CAREER FAIR
Fall is the busiest recruiting season for public accounting. Each fall semester we host an Accounting Career Fair reserved for all UGA accounting students, undergraduate and graduate. Over 45 firms/companies have representatives in attendance each year to meet with our accounting students who seek internships and/or full-time positions. It's a great opportunity to network, make connections and jump-start your search. For details, see our Accounting Career Fair web page.
RECRUITING HANDBOOK FOR ACCOUNTING STUDENTS
To help you prepare for the Accounting Career Fair, we publish an annual Recruiting Handbook for UGA accounting students. It contains a wealth of helpful information, including interview advice, dress code details, and contact information for hundreds of companies and firms. The Handbook is available at the beginning of each fall semester. To access the 2013-14 Recruiting Handbook, click here.
RESUME BOOK FOR RECUITERS
We assemble a Resume Book each fall for recruiters, so they can prepare for the Accounting Career Fair, too. All accounting students who seek an internship or full-time position in the coming academic year are encouraged to submit a one-page resume for inclusion in the book, which is distributed to potential employers prior to the beginning of each fall semester.
