VERMILLION, S.D. -- Accounting students in the University of South Dakota Beacom School of Business met with representatives from 16 national and local professional firms this week.
Meet the Firms gives students the chance to meet with prospective employers to network and build relationships that could lead to internships or employment after graduation. More than 70 students attended this event designed to help students gain confidence interacting with business professionals.
“This event allowed me to make connections and learn more about firms where I may seek future employment,” said junior accounting major Jessica Sandbulte.
“Meet the Firms was an exciting event to share in the enthusiasm of starting a career, and specifically the opportunities that Deloitte can offer to each individual student. It is also a great way to connect with students interested in our full-time and internship positions, as well as our summer leadership programs,” said Tiffany Paben, senior manager at Deloitte.
