Well, we kicked off the semester right this year, with an amazing turnout at the Fall interest meeting, and then followed that event up with a terrific Meet the Professionals Event. We had 19 Firms show up at the event, and 80 students went through those doors to meet them. The atmosphere was great and I could tell that everyone there had prepared for this event and impressed the professionals. I also received several compliments from the professionals, so they were pleased with our turnout as well. Great job for everyone, and fantastic way to represent Marshall!
Our next meeting is scheduled for this Thursday in Corbly Hall Room 104 at 5:15 and covers interviewing skills. This will be a great lecture, and I hope to see you there.
Now, onto the rest of the semester. This time is going to get very busy, with several events coming up, including the “Pro-Am” Golf Scramble, the Huntington Firms Visit, and a few service opportunities. Look for the new pages with information to go up shortly for all of these, and be on the lookout for flyers in the hallways with additional information. Several of these require signing up, so don’t drag your feet or it may be too late!
Lastly, let’s talk about internships and jobs! Jobtrax currently has several different firms looking for applicants and some of those deadlines for applying are this week!!! Make sure that you don’t miss this opportunity to interview and apply for a position. In addition, for our fall and spring graduating seniors, the WVSCPA career fair is on October 5th, and that also has sign up requirements and deadlines. It is definitely in your best interest to attend these events and take advantage of these opportunities!
As always, if you have any questions, concerns or comments, send them my way at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you at the meeting!
