CPA Recruit is an annual recruitment campaign where international, national, and local CPA firms hire accounting students for full-time, summer internship, or co-op positions. Typically, the process is split between two components, Fall Recruit and Spring Recruit, the latter of which is primarily relied on for public practice accounting.
Due to COVID-19, however, Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 have merged into one and now represent the collective hiring efforts of the industry. For more information on the altered framework, please see this document prepared by the Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre (BCC). Outlined in the document are various dates, deadlines, and changes to be aware of.
The BCC and UBC Accounting Club work together every year to coordinate with CPA Recruit and support you along the way. We are cognisant of the challenges faced by students during CPA Recruit and offer countless events throughout the year, for both informative and networking purposes, to provide any and all desired resources.
