2018 Accounting PhD Rookie Recruiting and Research Camp

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Accounting PhD Rookie Recruiting & Research Camp? 
The 2018 Accounting PhD Rookie Recruiting & Research Camp is a two-day forum for faculty and recruiters to meet and network with PhD candidates, attend 15-minute research presentations by job-seeking candidates, and interview a number of candidates interested in faculty or private sector positions. 

Who should attend?
PhD candidates from all research backgrounds (audit, financial, information systems, tax, analytical, experimental, behavioral, empirical, etc.) with expected graduation in Spring 2019 are encouraged to apply to attend the Camp. Registered recruiters will receive a convenient resume/"bio book" of all PhD candidates organized by dissertation topic. Recruiters may schedule interviews with candidates both before the camp and during the camp (i.e. a recruiter may see an interesting presentation and want to schedule an on-site interview). 

When will registration open?
Registration will open in the Fall of 2018.
