Every year, accounting and professional services firm Deloitte hires about 500 to 600 new graduates from its campus recruitment initiatives. This represents about one-half of the Toronto-based firm’s annual hiring, said Tiffany Wilson, lead of campus programs at Deloitte.

That, coupled with tough competition from other firms such as Ernst & Young, make campus recruitment a year-round activity for Deloitte, said Wilson.

“We engage our professionals year-round in activities to raise awareness about our brand and what we do,” she said. “We also want to get to know the students and build those long-term relationships rather than just showing up to fill a job.”
