CollegeFrog, a recruitment automation provider for professional services firms, is hosting a Spring 2013 National Meet the Firms Week March 25-29, as a follow-up to its inaugural virtual recruiting event last October.

CollegeFrog is hoping to expand on last fall’s attendance, which connected 200 accounting firms and 2,500 students nationwide and provided webinars on the CPA exam and career paths, to 10,000 participating students.

National Meet the Firms Week updates the traditional model of on-campus recruiting events to a virtual exchange between firms and students, who distribute their resumes to these hiring firms at no cost to either party.

“Accounting employers want to identify top accounting students in a cost-effective way,” said CollegeFrog CEO Jeff Phillips, in a statement. “National Meet The Firms Week gives employers the opportunity to find students from around the country who are interested in working with their firm.”

Accounting Today is co-sponsoring the event along with The Association for Accounting Administration, Becker Professional Education, Boomer Consulting, The Institute of Internal Auditors, Sage and ThisWayToCPA.
