2020 Meet the Firms: Accounting Career Fair Week

"Meet the Firms" is UTK's largest annual recruiting event for accounting, audit, tax, and advisory internships and full-time jobs. 30+ Firms, corporations, and government or non-profit entities recruit for the following spring and summer positions. This event is held in the FALL ONLY, so you won't want to miss it! Accounting undergraduate freshmen- seniors are encouraged to attend Meet the Firms as an opportunity to network, visit with prospective employers, and secure interviews. Finance, Business Analytics majors, or MBAs may also find the fair relevant based on their career interests. You will meet various organizations and learn about opportunities for full-time employment and for internships for Spring and Summer 2020. We highly encourage students to attend each panel discussion to get to know the firms/recruiters prior to Recruitment Friday. In the event you cannot attend the panels, we will be recording the events and posting those recording to the UTK Center for Career Development YouTube Page.

I enjoyed it a lot! The zoom format was relatively easy to use and I learned a lot.
