Meet Your Employer


Meet Your Employer is a career fair style event to connect employers with future CPAs seeking relevant work experience for the CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP). CPA Alberta holds these events annually in the fall, bringing together thousands of students and key employer partners in Calgary, Edmonton, and Lethbridge.

Meet future CPAs and showcase your unique brand. Last year at Meet Your Employer, over 1,000 business students from post-secondary institutions in Alberta attended!

Position your organization as an ‘employer of choice’ for post-secondary students and recent graduates looking for full-time, co-op, and summer positions. As an exhibitor, you will connect with the next generation of CPAs, who are eager to start their careers. This is a great opportunity to profile your organization and promote available positions.

Why exhibit:

  • Reach a targeted audience: post-secondary students and graduates with accounting majors
  • Meet the next generation of business leaders committed to pursuing the CPA designation
  • Save time and money with direct access to qualified candidates in a one-stop environment
  • Meet a large pool of candidates face-to-face
  • Fill employment vacancies and educate candidates on your hiring process
  • Initial screening can be done at this event
  • Create brand awareness for your organization
  • Meet and network with other organizations

Employer Testimonials

We saw immediate benefits after attending the event. Our program intake applicants increased 2x and our summer student applicant intake increased 3x. We not only were able to promote for our pre-approved CPA training program, but we got a great response for our permanent full-time positions as well. As a result of attending Meet Your Employer, our presence in the accounting field has dramatically increased and we are finding post-secondary students are looking forward to us attending CPA events.
David Blanchard CPA, CMA, Senior Manager, ATB
Participating at Meet Your Employer events provides an interactive platform to position the City of Edmonton as a great option for new graduates and as an employer of choice in their accounting career. It also allows us to market our newly established CPA pre-approved program. We look forward to future events!
