What a wonderful way to start the fall 2021 semester with an in-person event! The Nichols College Career and Professional Development Center (CPDC) held the 2021 Accounting & Finance Career and Internship Fair on Tuesday, September 14th. The CPDC is proud to say the event was a great success!

All guests and students that attended thoroughly enjoyed the experience of face-to-face interaction.
Feedback received confirms the success of the event and the appreciation for an in-person event:
Kim Krumsiek from Krumsiek & Associates, PC commented: “This is always a great event! We look forward to this event every year! CPDC does an outstanding job putting this event together. I also enjoyed being in the Field House. I thought I was going to miss Daniels Auditorium, but the Field House was big enough for students, faculty, staff, and employers to meet together. Nice job CPDC!”
A student in attendance commented: “I was so honored and thankful to be able to visit the Accounting & Finance Fair as a Freshman! I really enjoyed engaging and learning about the different companies and job roles that I can get myself into during my Junior and Senior years! Overall, I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to be able to be exposed to such a great atmosphere!”
