Educational publisher John Wiley & Sons and accounting job finding website CollegeFrog have announced a partnership to increase the internship opportunities available to U.S. accounting students. Wiley is best-known as a provider of CPE education and CPA exam review materials.
Through the partnership, college students using WileyPLUS with Kieso, Weygandt, Warfield’s Intermediate Accounting 15th Edition will now have early access to all internship listings posted on CollegeFrog starting in mid-February.
CollegeFrog, WileyPLUS, and Wiley CPAexcel have also today launched “National Meet the Firms Week”, a free online recruiting event that introduces job and internship-seeking accounting students to firms across the country. During Meet the Firms Week, students’ online profiles and resumes will be distributed to every registered firm in their state. The event, which runs through to 7th February 2014, also supports students’ career development process with daily informational webinars.
“Wiley has been the preeminent leader in accounting education for decades, and we continue to create the best platforms to help support the progression of accounting majors. Our partnership with CollegeFrog will help students to have greater access to the best accounting internships, and connect their course work to help launch their future careers.” says Steve Smith, President and CEO of Wiley.
“For the thousands of firms wanting to hire top level interns the traditional model no longer works. The days of taking time off to travel to a college campus, or multiple campuses, are well and truly over,” says Jeff Phillips, CEO of CollegeFrog. “Wiley and CollegeFrog, through our unique initiatives, provide every firm, from the Big Four to smaller local firms, with the best opportunity to find the right talent at a lower cost.”
CollegeFrog's internships will be featured in WileyPLUS, a research-based, online environment for effective teaching and learning. Students using WileyPLUS will be able to search for internships within the same platform as they read their e-textbook, do their homework, and prepare for exams.
