The Miller Business Honors Program hosted a brand new event the morning of this year’s Fall Career Fair. This was a combined breakfast and networking time provided exclusively for all accounting majors—freshmen through graduate students—in the Program. As students, we were able to spend time getting to know recruiters from eleven different accounting firms and, in turn, allow them to get to know us as well. These firms ranged from small companies that are local to Muncie to three of the Big 4 accounting firms. Continue reading “Breakfast of Champions”

What started off as a cold, hour long bus ride to Fishers, Indiana, ended up as a striking success for the Miller College of Business at Ball State University. The first snowfall of the year decided to start on our way to the city just north of Indianapolis, and to our dismay, the heat on the bus failed to blow anything but cold air. About 16 current Miller Honors students attended the event, with four Miller Honors Alumni as well, in the hopes of recruiting some of the finest business students around.

The trip was the conclusion of an international business course that was centered on globalization. Our final project for the class was to write a paper about various similarities and differences between business in the United States and business in Germany and/or Ireland.

So what are we all in college for? Yes, you in the back row waving your arm furiously. Jobs, correct! Give that girl a prize! And what is the single largest deciding factor on whether or not you get one? Well, that’s a subjective question but the answer I’m looking for is the interview. If they don’t like you’re your resume, they don’t call you, and you keep looking. It’s the interview that really makes or breaks the whole application process, because you know they’re at least somewhat interested and on paper you seemed qualified enough. Okay, I know, an Honors College student doesn’t write in the second person. I’ll stop now. The basic point is that interviews are extremely important, and at times just as (if not more) stressful, especially when looking for one’s first job in the foreboding “real world”.
