With over 55 students and faculty in attendance, the UBA’s ”Recruiter Ready Finance and Accounting Panel” held last Tuesday was a great success.  The panel featured knowledgeable and experienced representatives from PwC, Fidelity Investments, Ernst & Young, and the GWSB community.   Each panelist was eager to provide students with important information and possible opportunities regarding recruitment, interviews, internships, and full-time positions.  Freshman Priyanka Vashisth, who was in attendance on Tuesday, said: “The different perspectives of the company recruiters definitely allowed me to get familiarized with the recruiting process.”  For students of all ages, there was a lot to learn from the panel.  The networking session held after the panel was great, as students were able to ask the panelists questions, speak with them on a more personal level, and build their professional network .  “The speakers were very informative and the networking session was an exciting opportunity to meet new people and make new connections,” said Freshman Parth Rege. The UBA would like to thank all students who were in attendance, the panelists, and the F. David Fowler Career Center for all of your support. We hope all students benefited from this unique event and are now truly “recruiter ready”. 

"The finance and accounting panel was a great way to continue expanding my knowledge of recruitment and the industry as a whole.  As a junior concentrating in finance, it is crucial to get a summer internship that could lead to a full time position when I graduate. Application deadlines are approaching and interviews are starting so attending the panel was relevant and useful!"
-Marissa Weiner, GWSB Junior concentrating in Finance
