Join us for a combined Accounting &Finance Day, hosted by the Kogod Center for Career Development and co-sponsored by Kogod's Accounting Club and Kogod Finance Group (KFG).

The event will kick off at 11:30 a.m. with a panel of alumni representing the various opportunities within the accounting world, i.e. public (audit, tax and advisory), government, not-for-profit, etc. followed by a panel of alumni and employers from the financial industry.

Students will have an opportunity to learn more about the career tracks within each of these areas and hear how these alums have had unique career paths to their current jobs.

Following the panel, representatives from organizations across D.C. will have the opportunity to meet with students and discuss career opportunities during our career fair.

After the fair, we invite corporate partners, alumni and students to join us for a networking reception in the Kogod School of Business where you will have the opportunity to further network with colleagues across D.C. and future accounting and finance professionals.

Whether you are seeking new talent, or hoping to strengthen your professional network, Accounting & Finance Day is an event that you should not miss.

This event is free for all employer and alumni participants.
