Recruiting

Hiring companies get to know our students in a variety of ways: through prerecruiting events, interviews, corporate visits, networking sessions, and educational presentations with student clubs, to name a few. When you're a student here, you have lots of opportunities.

With the help of our Career Management team, you'll be ready to seize on these chances as they arise, be it through a connection you make or a job posting you see. As partners in your career search, we teach you everything from how to research a desired company or industry to the best way to market yourself, ace an interview, or negotiate a salary. Whatever your goals may be, the Columbia community has the expertise and the connections to help you reach them.

In addition to assisting in your full-time job search every step of the way, the Career Management Center also offers comprehensive support for students pursuing an internship between their first and second years. Many students find that internships are a great way to gain experience in a new, desired industry or work function and to set themselves up to thrive when they finish at Columbia.

Every October and January, Uris is transformed for On-Campus Recruiting season for full-time and internship positions, respectively. Dozens of top employers conduct interviews right on campus, MBA students swap their cluster t-shirts for business suits, and all the training and resources the CMC has offered you in the previous months starts to pay off once you step into that interview room.

Throughout the year, the CMC also supports students in the enterprise job search — people pursuing industries and functions that do not use On-Campus Recruiting and requires students to proactively seek out full-time or internship positions. As this type of recruiting ramps up in the spring term, the CMC creates structure for a typically unstructured search process through weekly meetings, one-on-one advising, alumni panels, and career skills workshops.
