How can you tell you’re in a room of career-focused college students? There’s leftover pizza.
Last evening, I spoke to a bright, very nice collection of Beta Alpha Psi members at The Ohio State University. If this is the future of accounting, then the “old guard” in the profession should feel pretty good.
We talked about their careers, how older generations at firms are adapting/not adapting to the needs of this age group, trends and hot issues in the accounting profession, technology, business development, IFRS and more. Exciting time with a great group of accountants-to-be.
Nearly half of these Beta Alpha Psi members have jobs lined up for when they graduate in the months ahead—and most of the rest of them are waist-deep in the interviewing pond. As expected, at this stage of the game, all commitments are with Big Four firms. Some students are staying in Columbus, but not all; PwC/New York, Deloitte/Cincinnati and Deloitte/Cleveland were just some of the positions accepted. Ernst & Young was the only Big Four firm to have not nabbed one of these young professionals.
Now, about that leftover pizza…
