The event will kick off with a panel of employers focusing on the topic, "Does Size Matter? What size CPA firm is right for you?" Following the panel during our Career & Networking Fair, students can meet employers from the public, private and government sectors. After the fair, we invite students, alumni and corporate partners to join us for a reception in the KCCD where you will have the opportunity to further network with accounting professionals across DC.
