The Cal Poly Accounting Club (CPAC) is a continuously growing organization that serves as the primary recruiting channel for Business-Accounting students. We strive to provide students with all of the necessary information about firms and opportunities so they can make informed decisions. This is not possible without the generous support of firms and professionals.
The Cal Poly Accounting Club offers multiple ways to get involved including:
Professional Development and Firm Presentations at our weekly meeting
A fall and winter career fair
Philanthropy events to connect with students - OCOB Olympics
Socials to network with students
Leading a professional development workshop
Tabling in the business building
The Cal Poly Accounting Club hosts two career fairs each year. The first career fair, Fall Symposium, takes place in the fall. It is designed for junior and senior students looking for internship and full-time opportunities.
The second career fair, Careers in Accounting Day takes place in the winter. It is designed for freshman, sophomore, and junior students looking to learn more about accounting and summer leadership programs.
Firm sign-ups for Careers in Accounting Day will begin in early December 2017. Firms will be emailed an invitation to register using Eventbrite to the recruiter we currently have listed. If your firm does not receive an invitation or the recruiter has changed please contact the VP of Professional Events at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Both career fairs are a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about your firm and company. We tend to draw over 300 students to each career fair.

The Cal Poly Accounting Club hosts a weekly meeting from 11-12p every Tuesday in the Business Building. The meetings provide firms the opportunity to gain exposure for their firms and develop relationships with students. For more information on CPAC Weekly Meeting Presentations click here.

The accounting area is committed to building relationships with employers who have recurring recruiting needs. If you think you have a consistent need for accounting, finance, information systems, etc. students, we encourage you to meet with the Executive Director of Accounting Excellence, Sheri Boscaro to learn about ways to get involved on campus.
