Earlier and Earlier

From the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, an item on how the big firms are grabbing the talent from colleges well before graduation:
(Accounting student Danny) Abrams said he has seen firsthand the effects of market demand. Big-name accounting firms come on campus "gobbling up" students in record numbers -- so much so that smaller firms have a hard time finding anyone to work for them.

Rachel Henderson, another U of M graduate student, estimated that around 75 percent of students are already locked into jobs in their senior year.

"With demand from CPA firms, there's such big turnover," Henderson said. And that drives firms to recruit students before they graduate.
