Thanks to our sponsor Virtus Group, we have created a new event that connects students with business professionals.
On October 26th from 4:00pm - 6:00pm, we will be taking between 8 - 10 accounting students to Virtus Group's place of business, which is 200- 2208 Scarth Street.
The Event Schedule is:
4:00pm - 4:45pm:
- A tour of Virtus Group's firm in which students will meet different accounting professionals in different areas and times in their careers (i.e. Tax Manager, Accounting student doing CPA, new September hire, Partner, etc.)
4:45pm - 5:00pm:
- Students are introduced to Virtus Group's Emerging Professionals (EMPRO's)
5:00pm - 5:30pm:
- Students are asked to attend a presentation with the EMPRO's which is given by guest speakers, Matt Anhalt , who is a Virtus Group Manager and U of R alumni along with Baron Anderson from Investors Group. The topic of the presentation will be called "What I Wish I Knew When I Was In School".
5:30pm - 6:30pm:
- Accounting students are then invited to join the EMPRO's, speakers, and others to network and ask questions.
This is a great event for accounting students to attend, you will have the chance to shake hands with new and influential people in the area you are majoring in and receive advise from those who have been in the exact spot we are all in now.
For those accounting students interested in attending, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name. We will be taking students on a first come first serve basis, so be quick and the event is FREE to students.
There will be another Tour and Mixer in the Winter semester. That date is to be determined.
