Meet the Firms

The School of Accountancy’s Meet the Firms night is an annual career fair held at the beginning of the fall semester, especially for accounting students. The event provides an opportunity for students to learn more about careers and opportunities within the accounting field, as well as network with companies in order to develop future contacts and employment prospects. The event also provides recruiting firms a chance to meet and connect with potential candidates from USM to fill positions within their companies for full-time and internship positions. All accounting students and alumni are encouraged to attend, regardless of graduation date.
