Student Profiles

The School of Accountancy Student Profile Book is prepared by the Beta Alpha Psi chapter at Utah State University. It includes brief profiles of some of the school's undergraduate and graduate students. Nearly 100 firms from the Rocky Mountain region receive a copy! In addition to having your profile published in the book, your resume will also be viewable online (password protected) by the recipient firms. The book and online resumes have been helpful and highly praised tools for firms that recruit USU's students. Some recruiters have even remarked that presence in the profile book is almost a prerequisite for interview consideration. Inclusion in the book is a great way to get on the top of recruiters’ lists.

The Profile Book is a reflection of the entire accounting program, not just Beta Alpha Psi and not just students still looking for work. We strongly encourage all students to submit a profile, even if you already have a job lined up after graduation*.

*Note, if you already have a job lined up after graduation we will wave the $5 fee.
