Meet an Olympian; Meet a CPA Firm

  • Deloitte Uses Olympics and Paralympics to Recruit

  • Big Four CPA firm Deloitte and Touche is bringing nine Olympic and Paralympic athletes to college campuses in a month-long recruiting blitz.  Soccer star Abby Wambach, two-time gymnast Jonathan Horton and others will recount their experiences while soon-to-be graduates discuss opportunities with the CPA firm.  Lisa Baird of the US Olympic commitee praised D&T for highlighting the dedication and character of the athletes.

    An excellent act by Deloitte: it provides a effective gimmick to get student attention; illustrates the potential and accomplishments of handicapped Americans and allows the Olympians to avoid being forgotten for the next 3+ years.  Doubt that they will be at Austin Peay, but hope many readers have a visit nearby.
