Student Development Directors organize and host two important networking events: Networking Workshop and Mock Interviews. Networking Workshop gives students two one-on-one 15 minute sessions to practice "speed networking" and to help students develop interpersonal skills to better prepare them for Meet the Firms. Mock Interviews workshop gives students two 30 minute one-on-one interview sessions. Professionals and recruiters give feedback on each student's interviewing skills; these sessions help students better prepare themselves for on-campus and in-house interviews. Both events are stepping stones to becoming professional accountants and are also a great way to network with professionals.
Meet the Firms

Every semester, the Accounting Association (AA), Beta Alpha Psi (BAΨ), Management Information Systems Association (MISA), and the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA) hold our semi-annual Meet The Firms (MTF) event. Meet The Firms is a career fair for CSUN students featuring: public accounting firms, information systems firms, private industry companies, and governmental agencies. Typically, all three organizations rotate on leading the event. Organizing MTF is not an easy task and requires much time and effort from all participating parties. Depending on which organization is leading the event, responsibilities may or may not include: contacting firms to participate, finding and reserving a venue, setting up event sign-up tables, creating name tags for all attendees, promoting event through flyers and banners, managing a strict budget, creating floor plans, preparing documents, coordinating and attending regular MTF committee meetings, communicating with team members, and problem-solving.
