Virtual Recruiting Match-Up

Event Date: September 13

Each year the Recruiting & Career Opportunities Committee of the WVSCPA offers a Recruiting Fair for eligible college/university juniors, seniors or enrolled in graduate school, bringing together numerous employers and students for the interview process. As a result of COVID-19, the traditional in-person WVSCPA Recruiting Fair has now become a Virtual Match-Up!

Note: This process is not a guarantee that our students will receive contact from every employer. The sole purpose of this year’s process is to match employers with quality potential future-hires.

Employers, if interested, will contact eligible students directly to setup phone calls, Zoom meetings, etc. for a preliminary chat or a formal interview.

The students who have submitted their resumes will receive a booklet of firms who are taking part in the Match-Up.

Students MUST be a Student Member of the WVSCPA and are required to meet the established criteria to be considered for participation.  Students meeting the criteria will submit their resume, transcripts (an unofficial copy is acceptable) and an application via the website.  

For more information, contact the Society at wvscpa@wvscpa.org or (304) 342-5461.

In order to be aligned more with our participating employers’ recruiting timelines we are moving up our timeline by a couple of weeks.
