FPA DFW Career Day Information

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  The FPA DFW Career Development Committee highly values the integrity of the Career Day process and its participants.  The Career Development Committee does not match resumes with participating firms.  We provide a centralized location for firms to interview potential candidates. Participating firms and candidates are subject to change.  If a participating firm contacts interviewees prior to Career Day, they will automatically forfeit their interviewing times for the entire day.  Likewise, if an interviewing candidate contacts an interviewing firm prior to Career Day, that interviewee will forfeit all of their scheduled interviews and no refunds will be issued.
