BHSU to Host Annual Accounting Career Fair

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

We are excited to offer this opportunity to bring employers who need accounting students and graduates together with our accounting majors from both of our locations in Spearfish and Rapid City.

Here is a great chance to specifically connect with BHSU accounting students looking for internships and career opportunities in the field of accounting.  
Any accounting firm or company seeking to connect with or employ BHSU accounting students in internships or full time positions after graduation is welcome to attend. If you do not have current openings you are welcome to attend and network with our accounting majors for possible future employment.

Join us for a wonderful opportunity to meet and network with accounting professionals who are specifically looking for students majoring in accounting. Also take the time to learn about firms and jobs that you may not have previously considered.  
All junior and senior accounting majors are strongly encouraged to attend. Sophomores are welcome to attend as well for networking purposes. Students who RSVP by 9/15/14 will be excused from their classes during the career fair so they can attend and not worry about class conflicts.

Times and Locations
The event will serve students at BOTH of our BHSU locations.

Jacket Legacy Room, Student Union
Set up 12:30 – 1:00
Introductions and "Accounting Jam*" 1:00 – 1:30
BHSU Accounting Career Fair 1:30 – 2:30

Set up 5:00 – 5:30
Introductions and "Accounting Jam*" 5:30 – 6:00
BHSU Accounting Career Fair 6:00 – 7:00

*The Accounting Jam is a new event where employers have 2 minutes to pitch their company to students in a short “elevator speech”.  After the company introductions, recruiters and students have a chance to mingle before the career fair officially begins.  The goal is to create a comfortable environment where students have a chance to meet employers and maybe peak their interest in companies they did not intend to approach.

Would you like to participate? Learn more details, complete our online registration form.

Please RSVP so you can be excused from your classes and so we know how many students to expect. The final date to RSVP is 9/15/14. RSVP online today by completing the online RSVP form.

If you have any questions, please contact Laura Prosser at 605.718.4363 or email Laura.Prosser@bhsu.edu.
