Columbia Business School utilizes a free, on-line job board that you can use to publicize any job opportunities you may have year-round, at any level and for any market. In addition to our current MBA and Executive MBA students, our global alumni base of over 41,000 graduates also accesses this board for job opportunities. To access the Job board, which is part of our overall recruiting system called COIN (Career Online Information Network), use the following link: www.gsb.columbia.edu/jobpost
The first time you post on COIN, you’ll need to create an account. Select your own username and password and complete the company and contact profiles. You will then be able to post a job using the “Post A New Job” link in the Job Postings section of your homepage. This will open a posting form that will enable you to target the opportunity by using a combination of check-boxes, drop-down menus and text boxes. Please make sure to select the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page when finished.
The job posting will then remain pending until it is reviewed and approved by our office (within 24 hours), after which it will be viewable to candidates. You can manage your job postings at any time (including expiring or refreshing) by logging back into COIN using your username and password.
A variety of career resources are available for alumni, including an alumni database for networking, individual career counseling, career events and newsletters, and comprehensive job search tools; such as Hoovers and First Research.
