UTSA Accounting Students Impress the EmployersMGR Accounting Recruiters in
Last week we joined many of the local accounting firms and private industry employers for the “Accounting Recruiting & Networking Expo” at the UTSA Main Campus. This was our first year to participate, and we were impressed.
Usually when I write a blog entry it is to help employers or job seekers with their endeavors to find the right match, but this entry has a different purpose – simply to praise.
There are many reasons the students this year were so memorable, but if I had to wrap it up in one word it would be: professionalism.
All of the students were well-dressed, smiling, confident, and prepared for a good discussion about their career goals. Some had a very specific idea about the direction they wanted to go, and others were considering a few possibilities, but in either case all were well prepared for a discussion about their future.
As I looked across the large room and observed these sharply-dressed soon-to-be-graduates interacting with their future employers, it was impossible to not have a pleasant feeling about the future of our profession. We are fortunate to have such bright, good-hearted people entering the accounting field.
We enjoyed participating in the event and look forward to the positive impact you all will have on our profession and on the world. Thank you to everyone that participated in the event.
I wish you the best in your career.
