Meet the Firms Night
In 2018, Meet the Firms Night will be held the day before the University of Iowa Job and Internship Fair. If you would like us to arrange volunteers to help move your displays from Meet the Firms Night to the University Career Fair, please let us know. Be sure to indicate on the Reservation Form whether or not you want our help moving to the University Career Fair.
If you would like to attend Meet the Firms Night, please complete the Reservation Form and mail your $400 check, payable to Beta Alpha Psi, by August 24, 2018. We will provide your firm with one six-foot table for your display and name tags for your representatives. You will be responsible for any other materials (table linens, table skirt, extension cords, etc.) that you will need. We ask that you provide us with the names of your firm's participants so that we can prepare name tags and maintain our list of contacts.
Due to the strong interest in Meet the Firms Night, registration will be on a "first come; first serve" basis. We look forward to seeing you at Meet the Firms Night.
Firm Cost: $400, payable by check to Beta Alpha Psi by August 24, 2018
Attire: Business or Business Casual (students will be in professional dress)
In the past, we've provided links to participating firms' websites so that students can prepare for Meet the Firms Night. This year, we invite you to customize the information students have about you by providing a firm profile. These profiles are intended to give students a brief overview of your firm so that your time with them at Meet the Firms Night is more productive. We will post these profiles at our website in addition to linking to firms' websites.
We are also asking for volunteers to conduct mock interviews for accounting students during the week of Meet the Firms Night. The interviews will be scheduled from 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, September 26, and from 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, September 24, 25, 27, and 28. Other dates can be arranged if that is more convenient for your firm. Each interview will last 45 minutes, consisting of 30 minutes of interviewing and 15 minutes of evaluation. Please indicate on the Reservation Form whether your firm is interested in hosting interviews on one or more of these dates and the number of schedules you can accommodate. We will contact you to coordinate details.
If you have questions about Meet the Firms Night, contact our Beta Alpha Psi Fall 2018 President, Vance Mueller (firstname.lastname@example.org), or our Beta Alpha Psi Faculty Advisor, Professor Joyce Berg (joyce-berg@ uiowa.edu).
