Our biggest recruiting event, Meet the Professionals, will be hosted Wednesday, September 7th. Meet the Professionals is a career fair for BAP students featuring public accounting and private industry companies that recruit primarily accounting, but also finance and information systems majors at the University of Utah.
We wanted to get all of the information out to you now so you can plan accordingly. The beginning of the semester is always busy and we only have two BAP meetings before this event. So, if you have any questions please contact us as soon as possible! We really want to encourage every member and candidate to attend this event. It provides so much value in creating connections and discovering your personal career path. If you have any hesitations, or are on the fence about attending please come talk to one of us at a meeting or send our officers an email, we would love to help you.
