In 2013, our event will be held the evening before The University of Iowa's Career 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. Additional information about the University of Iowa Career Fair is found at their website: www.careers.uiowa.edu/fairs.

If you would like to attend Meet the Firms Night, please complete the Reservation Form and mail your $200 check, payable to Beta Alpha Psi, by August 21, 2013. We will provide your firm with one six-foot table for your display and nametags 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 Profiles

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.

Mock Interviews

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 25, and from 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, September 26 and 27. 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.
