Accountancy Career Fair Frequently Asked Questions

Is this career fair the same as the all-campus fairs held in the Convocation Center?

The Department of Accountancy conducts its own career fairs which are restricted to upper-division accountancy majors. Students who attend are juniors, seniors and graduate students who major in accountancy at NIU. We work closely with NIU Career Services, but this event is not listed on the Career Services website and is definitely a separate event.

What types of positions are these students seeking?

NIU accountancy students may work at an academic internship after they complete two semesters in the upper-division program; they are eligible for an internship in the summer after their junior year. Juniors who attend the spring career fair are typically seeking an internship in the summer or fall of the same year or in the spring of the following year. Seniors who attend the spring career fair may be seeking an internship in the summer or fall of the same year or in the spring of the following year. Seniors who choose not to pursue a graduate degree at NIU may be looking for a full-time job. Graduate students may be looking for a summer internship or a full-time position.

Are employers required to adhere to the Job Offer Policy?

Yes, all employers who register for the Accountancy Career Fair are assumed to adhere to the Job Offer Policy. In essence, this policy requires all students to have at least two weeks to consider a job offer for an internship or a full-time position. All offers extended during the spring career fair must expire no later than October 29, 2021.

Are resume books available on Huskies Get Hired?

Yes, students do post resumes into semester-specific “resume books” for internships and into a general accountancy resume book for full-time positions. Employers who post jobs on Huskies Get Hired can access these resume books and may contact any student who has posted in a book. For more help with resume books, contact Jan Wylde in NIU Career Services at 815-753-8346.
