The annual “Meet the Accounting Firms” event was held Wednesday, September 13 in Woodard Hall’s Red Room. Co-hosted by the College of Business and Career for Career and Professional Development, the yearly event aims to bring together potential employers and current accounting students. Twelve firms and organizations from the Fredericksburg and DC areas were in attendance and met with students individually to offer information on internships and employment.
Participating firms included: Auditor of Public Accounts – Commonwealth of Virginia, Becker, Bowling, Franklin and Company, Deloitte, Department of Defense, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Foltz and Associates, Kositzka Wicks & Company, KPMG, Liberty Tax, PB Mares, Robinson Farmer Cox, and Tate & Tryon.
Students became acquainted not only with the firms, but with alumni who returned to represent their companies. Melisa Pilipovic ’17 from KPMG and Ripken Smith reconnected at the event. Smith recognized Pilipovic’s name as the person who convinced him to attend UMW. Pilipovic worked in the UMW call center for Admissions while attending UMW as a student.
Almost fifty College of Business students attended the “Meet the Accounting Firms” event. Acting Dean Ken Machande was joined by Professors Sayan Sarkar, David Henderson, Dave Covington, and Andrea Cordray from the College of Business.
