For the last several years, The Marston Group has participated in the nationwide college event, Meet The Firms night, held for aspiring accountants. This year, TMG expanded their participation to include events not only at Rhodes College, but also at the University of Memphis. Former students of both schools are presently employed at Marston, and the firm enjoys a great relationship with the colleges, having hired many students from both schools as interns over the years.
“Meet the Firms is a great time for us to get out and meet the upcoming generation of future accountants,” says TMG Senior Manager, Caren Creason. “As a part of our recruiting role in the Memphis area and to be supportive of our great relationship with the Accounting Department at Rhodes College, we have always participated in their Meet The Firms night for the current Junior and Senior accounting majors.” Creason and Senior Manager Mark Strickland are both Rhodes graduates, and Staff Associate Justin Carter is the current president of Beta Alpha Psi– the UofM event host/coordinators. Adds Creason, “This year, thanks to Justin’s role with the University of Memphis and Beta Alpha Psi, we are going to have a table at their Meet The Firms night, as well.”
Meet The Firms night was held Friday, August 31st on the UofM campus, followed by the Rhodes College event on Tuesday, September 4th.
