Accounting Career Fair

RIT's Accounting Career Fair is sponsored by the Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education to support the Next Generation of Accountants (NGA). It is an excellent opportunity for employers and students to connect regarding co-op and full-time opportunities.

RIT has removed covid restrictions regarding in-person events, and we look forward to hosting the fair on-campus this fall. As we comply with NYS to keep our students, staff, and employers safe, we will be updating our website with the latest health and safety protocols.
