MAC Career Services - For Our Employers

Our Student Candidates

MAC students seeking full-time employment
Each year we have 50-60 highly qualified MAC students seeking full-time employment after MAC graduation.  The majority of our students sit for the first section of the CPA in January (while they are in the MAC program), and complete all four sections before starting employment in the fall.  The average GPA for our current class is a 3.5 and the average GMAT score is a 571.  The Jenkins MAC Program consistently places students in the following markets; Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Greensboro, New York, Raleigh, and the Washington Metro area.

Accounting Internship Recruitment Program (AIR Program):
The MAC Career Services team works with a select group of undergraduate accounting students who plan to enter the NC State Jenkins MAC Program.  They become enrolled in the AIR Program in spring semester of their junior year.  Undergraduate students are invited to participate in the AIR Program based on faculty nominations. Faculty base their nominations on academic success, participation  and leadership qualities.  AIR Program participants possess a 3.2 minimum GPA and complete several career development workshops before participating in the recruitment process in the fall.

How to Get Involved With Our Recruitment Activities

Recruitment activities for students start the summer before the fall semester begins.  Activities include student career development workshops, Tour of Cities, and firm leadership conferences.   The beginning of the fall semester marks the official start of students' recruitment process. Employers are on campus and interviews and networking activities are in full swing.

Meet the Firms
Meet the Firms is designed for public accounting firms.  Participating public accounting firms are assigned an evening to host an information and networking session about their firm and meet MAC and AIR Program students (full-time and internship candidates).

The Accounting Corporate and Government Expo
The Accounting Corporate and Government Expo is a one day event, typically held on a Friday morning. Participating employers from corporate and government industries have the opportunity to meet our MAC and AIR Program students and share information about their organization and job opportunities within the accounting and finance departments.

Please contact Sara Concini, if your organization would like to participate in these recruitment events.  Please keep in mind that we are targeting employers that are seeking candidates for full-time employment from the MAC Program and/or for winter and/or summer internships from the AIR Program.
