Breaking the Ice: Career Development Activities for Accounting Students
Kilpatrick, Bob G.; Wilburn, Nancy L.
American Journal of Business Education, v3 n11 p77-84 2010
This paper describes two co-curricular career development activities, mock interviews and speed networking that we provide for accounting majors at our university. The driving force behind both activities was to increase comfort levels for students when interacting with professionals and to enhance their job interview and networking skills. Results indicate that both activities are successful, as a high proportion of students strongly agree/agree that the activities meet their objectives, and virtually all of the students strongly agree/agree that the activities are a worthwhile use of their time.
