Networking at Marshall

USC does an amazing job providing its students with constant networking opportunities. I feel that there are always events taking place which allow the students to meet the firms and talk with the recruiters. Being in an accounting class this semester, I have been amazed by the number of opportunities we receive to meet with the firms. For instance, there was a Greek Meet the Firms night held at one of the sorority houses that served as an open house for students to meet recruiters from each of the firms. In addition, my accounting professor had a meet the firms day in class where we had recruiters from PWC, EY, KPMG, and Deloitte. This was a wonderful chance to get to know more about each of the firms along with asking the recruiters any questions we had about the upcoming application process for the summer leadership programs. Having been at USC for only a little over a semester, I was not expecting to have nearly as much exposure to networking as I have had. It is very clear that Marshall is dedicated to helping its students through this process and the school plans a plethora of events that enable the students to meet a variety of firms. The networking through Marshall again stresses the power of the Trojan Family. Everyone from USC wants to help you and is willing to go out of their way to help you succeed. Overall, I could not be more impressed by the networking opportunities that I have already experienced in my short time here at Marshall.
