Lundquist College students pursuing careers in accounting have a great new way to connect with top national and regional firms like Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton, KPMG, Moss Adams, and PwC. Nearly every week during the winter and spring terms, a representative from one of these firms can be found holding informal "office hours" either at a table set up in the Lillis atrium or in the offices provided by Lundquist College Career Services. For students, these sessions are a chance to get their questions answered and make a connection—in a relaxed setting. "Any time a student can get to know a recruiter in a casual way—instead of meeting them for the first time in an interview—I think it takes a lot of the pressure off," said Margaret Savoian, the administrative manager of the accounting department who organizes the events. Recruiters benefit too. As PwC's Campus Sourcing Manager Carrie Rees recalled, "A number of our recent full-time and intern new hires regularly stopped by my office hours last year in preparation for their recruiting experience in the fall." Jobseekers looking for an edge will want to note the PwC recruiter's experience: "The students' effort to stop by on a regular basis demonstrated that they were taking initiative, and that's something that differentiated them in the recruiting process," said Rees.
