Students look to launch their accounting career network at Accounting Meet and Greet

The career event connected over 100 students with recruiters from 12 accounting firms.

Beta Alpha Psi partnered with the Student Professional Development Center to host Elon’s annual Accounting Meet and Greet on Sept. 9, which attracted 119 students who were able to network, learn about job and internship opportunities, and meet representatives from the companies in attendance, including the Big Four accounting firms.

“As a senior that is graduating in May, I found this event to be extremely useful for making connections,” said senior finance major Simran Puri. “I was able to gain valuable insight from the companies there and they were able to answer questions that I had about the application process.”
