Accounting Interview Day

Accounting has always been one of the leading industries in campus recruitment. Each fall public accounting firms and private employers compete to recruit the best students by hosting interviews for full time positions that typically begin the following summer or fall.  A few employers also recruit for summer interns at the event. The NCRC has consolidated the interview schedule into a single day in early October. Students / Graduates from member colleges use the NACElink system to submit resumes are pre-selected, sign up for interview appointments, and travel to Wesleyan University - Lincoln for interviews. With a mid-September deadline, accounting students need to contact Career Services during the first week in September or earlier to register and learn how to use the system.
