CPA Recruit

The CPA Recruit is the primary method of seeking employment up to one year in advance. It is a recruitment process where international, national, and local CPA firms hire for full-time, summer internship, or Co-op positions. The Beedie School of Business Career Management Centre and SFU ASA work together to coordinate the CPA Recruit and support you along the way.
