In the past, U of L Edmonton students were welcomed to attend the U of A Business Career Services (BCS) employer information sessions.  However, in the past two years sessions by firms have diminished and this year is no exception.  For this reason they are directing all students to the Meet Your Employer events as the primary means of meeting employers.  We want to thank the BCS for their past support!


If you are a registered co-op student, you are still welcome to take part in the Accounting Recruitment process, please see their procedures here [PDF].


Make sure your resume is ready and your interview skills are up to par! We offer many workshops to prepare you for the recruiting process. Click here to see the schedule and to register your attendance.  You can also find interview tips here
