Accounting Recruitment Instructions

READ CAREFULLY...

All of the information below is critical to the application process - please read VERY carefully and follow the directions and you'll be fine.

Career Services coordinates the accounting recruitment & campus interviews and utilizes an online recruitment system - "LakerLeads."  Although you will come to the Compass (145 Marano Center) to interview with potential employers, all resumes, cover letters and transcripts need to be submitted online.  You must be eligible to graduate Dec. '14, May, '15 or Aug. '15 in order to engage in the recruitment process, with the exception of those firms who are recruiting for internships in addition to full-time positions (details are below)

Below is a list of companies that are accepting application materials - cross reference this list as you search through the LakerLeads system. As you will see from the list, we have ONE deadline for you to get ALL materials submitted to LakerLeads - Monday, September 22th (midnight for online submissions, unless otherwise directed).  You will need to pay STRICT attention to the materials each firm is requesting and submit them online by the deadline.  Use LakerLeads to submit all materials. Job and Internship descriptions and any special instructions for applying will be listed in the LakerLeads system.


FYI

Resumes, Cover Letters and a Scanned Copy of Official Transcripts are REQUIRED for ALL companies conducting interviews on campus. 

** On Campus Interviews: For those firms that will be interviewing on-campus, our office will contact you via the email/local phone number listed on your resume to notify you of your selection status as soon as we know the recruiter's decision.  On-campus interviews are primarily conducted late September through October.

** Resume Referral: this means a company wants to receive resumes, cover letters and transcripts and applications of interested candidates, but has not scheduled a time to interview students on campus. The company will follow up with students on their own. This is common for first time recruiters as they want to see what SUNY Oswego students have to offer before committing to recruiting on-campus.

** Do not apply to these organizations on your own - utilize our office procedures. Many of these organizations have agreed to participate in recruiting through our office only. The contact info. on the company's profile is to assist you in writing professional, business-like cover letters. Per the schedule below, drop by for assistance in writing these job search documents, attend workshops, and/or check out our related handouts.

** Although the recruitment process through our office will put you in contact with many recruiters, we highly encourage you to look for other opportunities with other organizations not necessarily represented through this process.  If you have specific geographic preferences or other special considerations, please work with the Career Services office to uncover opportunities that match your needs.  We are here to help you in any way we can...

Your resume and cover letter creates your first impression with each firm - it is critical that these are done well. In addition to the workshops and drop-in hours in our office, you may want to take advantage of our "Optimal Resume" system. This is by far the best resume and cover letter system money can buy, and we are thrilled to offer it to you for free. Create these documents from scratch, use a template, check out examples, tutorials, and videos to help you polish them, and submit them online for review by our staff.

- Choose "yes" for the last two questions regarding system emails and resume books

- Click submit

Companies that wish to receive job search documents from SUNY Oswego candidates

** There are a number of companies that are recruiting for internships in addition to full-time positions. Be sure to select the internship position title within LakerLeads if you are applying for that, not the full-time job title.
