I cannot believe it’s already September. As Nick alluded to below, these past few months in the MAC program have really flown by. It seems like only yesterday that we (class of 2012) sat in Koury Auditorium for orientation. Now we face midterms, final projects and… [gasp!]… job interviews. Luckily, the MAC program makes this process incredibly easy for students.
In the program, the recruiting season officially kicks off in the summer. During these months, on a pre-designated day, accounting firms visit the campus, present information about their firms and mingle with students. From individual presentations, students can learn the history of the firm and what clients the firm typically serves. Next up are the informal “meet and greets” that offer students the opportunity to mingle with future co-workers. Finally, there are the official interviews that if aced –lead to office visits and a job offer.
Each part of the recruiting process blends seamlessly into the subsequent event and is designed to allow the class to learn more about the places that we would be starting our careers. With better knowledge about the people and the firms, students can make an informed decision, easing some the anxiety that surrounds a usually nerve-racking process. In the UNC MAC program, the recruiting process is made easy for students.
