This Issue's Theme: Beyond recruiting - working with campus groups September 26, 2008  
Editor's Note
All of us who are in the accounting profession probably have memories of job fairs or accounting days or career days or whatever they called them on on your particular campus. It was the one day of the school year (or maybe your entire college experience!) when you donned a suit, shined your shoes, applied your best grooming techniques, and let yourself be judged by the outside world.

Those interview extravaganzas still exist on campuses across the country, but these days, with more competition for accounting students who are entering the workforce and thanks to the wonders of new technology, accounting firms are pushing the envelope when it comes to having a presence on campus. What are your experiences? Let us know and we'd be happy to write about them, either from the student or the accounting firm's perspective.

Best regards,
Gail Perry, CPA
Managing Editor
