With Public Accounting recruiting becoming more competitive each year, Meaden & Moore is always looking for new tools that we can add to our effective strategy of reaching as many prospective employees as possible.
So, when Courtney Eaton reached out to HR to let them know that Junior Achievement (JA) would be holding a virtual career exploration program for middle and high students, Meaden & Moore jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this program by becoming one of JA’s Community Partners.
JA is our nation’s largest organization that has a mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed. In other words, they are an organization that is dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices.
This year, due to the pandemic, one of the ways that JA tried to accomplish their mission was by providing middle and high school students an opportunity to learn more about the different career paths that would be available to them in the future. To do this effectively, JA invited middle and high schools students that had taken a course that helped them learn their own strengths and interests to participate in a virtual career fair. This career fair gave them 24/7 access to employers that are currently working in the careers that the students had a matched interest in.
By participating in virtual career fair, Meaden & Moore had the opportunity to create a virtual career fair booth that was filled with pictures, videos, career path charts and job descriptions that could effectively portray what we had to offer the students in the near future.
The program was a success and we look forward to seeing many of these students reach out to us again soon!
