Recruiting Fair - Charleston, W.Va.

Event Date: October 5

Each year the Recruiting & Career Opportunities Committee of the WVSCPA offers a Recruiting Fair for eligible college/university juniors and seniors, bringing together numerous employers and students for the interview process.

This annual event has become such a huge success in the Charleston vicinity that for 2018 in addition to our Charleston event, we will be expanding to hold a recruiting fair in Wheeling, WV at the Wheeling Country Club on November 9th.

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.  Employers and committee members review the students' submitted information, along with firm/employer selections of who they would like to interview with, in order to provide students at least two interview times with participating firms. 

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