Sage to Cosponsor National Meet the Firms Week

National Meet the Firms Week Virtually Connects Outstanding Accounting College Students to Hiring Firms

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Oct 15, 2012) - Sage North America today announced their partnership with CollegeFrog, a company that works to match high performing accounting students and graduates with hiring firms across the nation, to present National Meet the Firms Week. This premier virtual accounting recruiting event runs October 29 - November 2.

National Meet the Firms Week allows hundreds of accounting firms nationwide to meet thousands of job-seeking accounting students and gives students the opportunity to get their resumes into the hands of hiring firms, all online and at no charge.

Colleges across the nation host Meet the Firms events on campus, allowing students to interact with local hiring firms in person. However, most firms cannot afford to recruit at multiple campuses in their area, and students want more exposure to more employment opportunities. This virtual, multi-day, national event was created to alleviate these challenges faced during the recruiting process and to increase exposure of students to these firms.

Students and firms alike are encouraged to visit www.meetthefirmsweek.com and create a profile. When the event kicks off on October 29, each participating firm will gain access to all student profiles in their state of operation.

Sage will cosponsor this event with other industry leaders, providing Sage 50 Accounting 2013 -- U.S. Edition product certification to participating students and a discounted membership rate to the Sage Accountants Network of $199 for the first year to participating firms.

"The future of the accounting profession is in the hands of these job-seeking college students, so we have the responsibility to foster development and encourage them as they enter the profession," said Jennifer Warawa, vice president, partner programs and channel sales, Sage North America. "Meet the Firms Week is the perfect event for young professionals looking to get started in accounting, and we are proud to be a partner with CollegeFrog, helping to build and sustain relationships to ensure a prosperous future."
