Andersen to Address Faculty and Career Center Staff Concerns

With all of the talk about Enron and the role of Andersen as its auditor, students around the world are rightfully confused about whether to accept positions with the Big Five firm.

In the first move to answer questions and calm the concerns of the entry level candidates, Joe Berardino, Andersen's CEO, will be hosting a conference call on Friday, February 15 at 2:00pm EST with key faculty & career center personnel of targeted universities around the country to discuss the Enron situation and communicate the firm's message regarding this issue.

Several Andersen offices across North America will host simultaneous discussion groups in their local offices for those who wish to listen to the conference call and discuss the implications locally.

This particular conference call is intended for accounting faculty and career center personnel, but no doubt other conferences calls will follow targeting other key constituencies of Andersen.

Contact your university or your local Andersen office to find out more details in your location.
