On February 15, eight world-class corporations (Ecolab, HNI, HyVee, John Deere, Principal Financial Group, Terex, Transamerica, and Rockwell Collins) participated in a speed-networking event with members of the UNI Accounting Club. Interacting in small groups, students met with recruiters for seven minutes per firm. At the conclusion of the speed-networking portion of the evening, students and firm representatives enjoyed an hour of relaxed conversation and appetizers.

Mike Redington (Accounting '08), Senior Tax Accountant from Transamerica stated, "I look forward to recruiting at UNI. I know I will always be able to find quality accounting students that will fit in well with the culture of Transamerica." Ben Carton, (Accounting '12; MAcc '13) Cost Accountant at HNI added, "HNI has consistently found that UNI graduates fit well with our member-owner culture and have an educational background that prepares them for success in their careers. The opportunity to attend events such as this has provided HNI with excellent exposure to the top accounting talent at UNI and continues to grow our desire to recruit at UNI."
