Beta Weekly - Week of October 4, 2015

Beta Weekly 10/4/2015

Hello everyone!
Hopefully,  you're all staying warm, as Michigan is swiftly transitioning into winter!

Last Thursday (top)
 Last week, we visited Beene Garter and Deloitte, where we ate Qdoba and got to hear about each firm and any tips they have for how to pick the right firm for you. Hopefully, it was informative and you learned something new or got to network with different professionals.

This Thursday (top)
 We will be visiting BDO and EY this week. Please, be in the lobby at, if not slightly before, 5:30pm for attendance. We will then head out to BDO or EY, depending on which group you signed up for. We will be carpooling this time, so please sign up for a carpool slot, as well as which group you'd like to be a part of. Attached is the Carpool and Group sign up sheets. If you have any questions, email Dan at Please, make sure you get your attendance recorded with Eric (, if you missed the sign-in on Thursday!
