Job connections for accounting majors

The Career Development Center sponsored an accounting speed networking event Tuesday in Mulvane Science Hall.

“We bring back alumni and employers to visit with people who are thinking about accounting as a major, for them to ask them questions and make connections,” Susan Wade, director of Career Development Center, said.

Seven professional accountants attended the event, six of them being Baker graduates.

Senior Stephen Underwood attended the event last year and this year and said he thought the event was more beneficial to him, and other students, this year.

“Everyone was more organized and the students appeared to be more prepared this year,” Underwood said. “The information the employers gave was very helpful.”
