“As a senior, this proved to be my first time attending the MSCPA Fall Career Fair. It isn't easy for me to get into Boston during the week, especially with my schedule. I considered once again passing up on the fair this year. I am certainly glad I attended.

The fair proved to be well worth it; within days I had interviews lined up with multiple firms. In the following weeks emails continued to pour in. To sum up the fair: two and a half hours allowed me to accomplish what would have taken weeks of online applications. Well worth my time and I couldn't have been happier with the results.”
— Jon Cushion, Baker Newman Noyes & UMass Lowell class of 2014
