Woodbury School of Business Hosts Annual ‘Meet the Firms’ Networking Event

Woodbury University students, alumni, and industry professionals participated in the Accounting program’s annual “Meet the Firms” networking event in early October. Panelists representing global, well-known accounting firms, along with large specialized, and smaller, local firms shared their insights about the field, different career paths, and recruitment advice. They also discussed how COVID-19 has impacted their industry.

Representatives from Ernst & Young and Deloitte offered insight around the benefits of working for a “Big Four” firm, and professionals from large specialized firms, Weaver & Tidwell and Moss Adams, shared thoughts on their unique niche in the accounting world.  An executive from a smaller, local firm, Kelly & Smalls, talked about a regional approach to accounting, while those working for the IRS and FBI discussed the benefits of a public service role in accounting.

The virtual event was a joint effort of the student-run Accounting Society and accounting faculty.
