2017 BAP Epsilon Alpha Meet the Firms

      Comments Off on 2017 BAP Epsilon Alpha Meet the Firms

Beta Alpha Psi invites ALL current Portland State University graduate, undergraduate, and post-baccalaureate students in the academic programs of accounting, tax and finance along with 2017 alumni to our largest recruiting event of the year, Meet the Firms! The majority of hiring for 2018 accounting summer internships and entry-level positions occurs during October 2017. Meet the Firms is your chance to develop professional connections before submitting your applications.

At this event, you will have the opportunity to network with accounting, tax, and finance professionals and recruiters from public accounting, industry, and government. Be sure to ask them any remaining questions you may have before interviews begin in October! While opportunities are skewed toward current students, 2017 graduates are welcome to attend.

Back by popular demand from our Spring Accounting Career Event (Spring ACE), we will host a Networking Workshop to help students prepare and warm-up for the event. The Networking Workshop will begin at 4:30 PM at the Oregon Convention Center!
