Every year, the CAA sponsors Firms and Industries Night. It is a career fair for BBA students featuring public accounting and information firms, private industry companies, and governmental agencies that recruit accounting and business majors. This is your opportunity to meet professionals from many great companies and even some potential employers.
It is important to meet professionals in your field all throughout your academic career, as they can give you some valuable information. Even if you're in your first year, it is never too early to start networking and learning about this field.
Firms and Industry Night is an important step in the recruiting process. Although you may be intimidated at first, as you attend more events, you will become more comfortable talking with professionals in your area of interest and gain a better understanding of what it means to do what you love and never work a day in your life!
