MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

Our society is welcome to all students at CSU Dominguez Hills. Below are some benefits that we would like to highlight when becoming a member. From our presence at meet the firms, to the speakers we bring out to our weekly meetings, our membership will grant valuable resources to your professional success.

 

MEET THE FIRMS

MEET THE FIRMS

This event is co-sponsored by the Accounting Society and the Career Center to bring out accounting firms to campus. In one night, you will meet real professionals from each firm, learn about their company culture, discover the specific work they do, and make a professional connection. This event has proven to be a useful tool for students searching for internships and/or full-time positions.

 

Accounting firms mainly recruit during the fall quarter before busy season and recruiters use Meet the Firms to learn about the potential candidates before the interview. Getting an edge on the competition is one of the main things the recruiting game is all about and going to an event such as Meet the Firms is another opportunity to set you apart from the rest.

SPRING BANQUET

SPRING BANQUET

This event is our culmination of an entire year's work. We invite professionals from organizations that would like to get to know you on a professional and personal basis. We will convene with Accounting Society members, alumni, professionals, and faculty while enjoying each other's company and conversation. Great relationships and future contacts are built at this and other events that we host. We'll also present recognition to members, such as scholarships, award certificates, and firm memorabelia.

SCHOLARSHIPS

SCHOLARSHIPS

As we expand our efforts to continually support our members, members of the Accounting Society are eligible to receive one of two available scholarships exclusively for Accounting Society members. During the spring, two members will be chosen to receive scholarships on behalf of CalCPA and CSUDH Accounting Society. 

 

BE A LEADER

BE A LEADER

Each semester the Accounting Society elects leaders to further continue the club in the following semester. This is a great opportunity for members who want to develop their leadership skills by taking part in operating, developing, and growing the club. Some of the positions include Professional Development, Secretary, Marketing Director, Website Director, Vice President, and President.

 

Becoming a leader will prepare you to collaborate with your peers, learning how to work together to reach a common goal. You will be able to connect with professionals to help plan meetings and open opportunities for the club. Leadership roles in the Accounting Society are a reflection of California State University Dominguez Hills and will get to collaborate with other various leaders to accomplish different initiatives on campus.

WORKSHOPS

Students often change their majors as they are exposed to new fields of study in college or when they realize their understanding of a subject differed from what its study entails. We strive to equip students with thorough knowledge of different fields in accounting, and this is achieved through our workshops. In partnership with the Career Center we provide resources for students to build their professional image. Whether it is through resume critique or interview practice, or having professional guest speakers we want you to be prepared to enter the job market in accounting.

WORKSHOPS

VITA

Our members have a great opportunity in receiving free training to prepare tax returns for low-income families. Real-world accounting experience is tough to come by and this is a great way to set yourself apart. You are working with real tax returns and are making a difference in the community. Many current professionals give credit to the VITA program for helping jump-start their careers in accounting. See our VITA section for more information.
