“The relaxed environment of the SOAR social allowed students to engage with experienced accounting professionals without the nervous feelings of an interview. I enjoyed meeting and hearing the perspectives of accounting professionals at all experience levels. The NCACPA SOAR networking event not only allowed me to build my confidence as an emerging accounting professional, it led to two job interviews, job offers, and a job with one of the CPAs who attended.”
– Sarah Knepper, UNC Pembroke student liaison
