Basic Tips and Tricks for Surviving a CPA Recruit:

  1. Network - Attend as many networking events as possible in order to familiarize yourself with the different firms and their recruiters. Create and maintain connections with recruiters.
  2. Be Prepared - Create a professional resume and cover letter that represents you well. For help with your resume and cover letter, book an appointment with a Career Coach through CareerLink. 
  3. Look the Part - Dress professionally and be conscious of your body language and posture.
  4. Do Your Research - Ask questions that are not answered in the job description, and take the time to research the company beforehand to demonstrate your knowledge while speaking with firms.
  5. Have a Goal in Mind - Establish an idea of what type of firm you would like to work for and how you want your career to grow. Your goals and ideas should align with those of the firm you work for to add value to the company.

Each firm has its own hiring timeline and practices. Check the firm’s website for information on their application process/timeline.
