CPA Recruit - A Reflection

More Than Just Meeting People

Going through the CPA recruit process can be a daunting experience. For some, it comes naturally, for others, not so much. Personally, the recruitment experience helped push me out of my comfort zone and challenge my limits. Here’s what I learned:

Quick Glance

1. It's a part-time job.

2. Establish relationships

3. Every firm is different

4. There are no stupid questions, but there are great ones

5. Have fun!

1. It’s a part-time job.

Recruit requires a great amount of commitment and effort. I made sure I had time to attend most if not all the networking events happening. Not to mention the coffee chats, office tours, social nights, and interviews that students go through. With school, work, volunteer, and sports going on, balancing my time was a key factor to having an enjoyable and successful recruit.

Advice: Learn to balance and set a schedule for all the events happening. If you’re feeling burnt out, it’s okay to say no!
