With hundreds of companies recruiting our students each year, the multitude of options available during recruiting season can become unwieldy.
By getting the word out about the opportunities your company is offering and the type of candidates you are seeking, you are more likely to attract applicants that are a good fit for your organization.
You may send one group e-mail message per event to all members of the targeted class by directing the message to one or both of the following addresses:
|Class 2017||Entire Class, Corporate Infoemail@example.com|
|Class 2017||January Entrants only, Corporate Info*||careers-2017S@lists.gsb.columbia.edu|
|Class 2018||Entered Sept 2015 only||careers-2018F@lists.gsb.columbia.edu|
*In the fall semester, only e-mail First-Year September Entrants.
It is always best to send e-mails to targeted groups, such as members of certain geographic- or industry-specific clubs. Go to the Student Groups website to review the list of student clubs. Once you have identified a target group, you can ask one of the listed club officers to forward your announcement to club members.
When you schedule a recruiting event through the Career Management Center, we will add it to the student event calendar. Please be sure to submit a descriptive publicity paragraph for the calendar. Clearly, the sooner we have this information the better for students. However, try not to promote a division or functional discussion that students may not be able to attend.
Calendar listings should include the following information, as applicable, about the presentation:
- Appropriate attire
- Divisions presenting
- Speakers’ names (including, if alumni, year of graduation from Columbia Business School)
- Complete industry and functional focus represented
- Job location(s)
- RSVP details
- Indicate any permanent work-authorization requirements for full-time or summer internship positions
- f you will review résumés from all interested students regardless of permanent work authorization, be sure to include this in your prerecruiting publicity
Our recruiting event assistant will be in contact with companies planning events to inform you about submission of calendar information via e-mail.
When you sponsor activities on our campus, your company benefits in a number of ways, including by raising your profile in the Columbia Business School community. That gives you a leg up in recruiting our exceptional, diverse student body.
If your firm is interested, our Corporate Relations and Career Management Center teams can work with your organization to determine which types of sponsorship best meet your specific goals.
Visit the Classroom
One of the best ways to get a recruiting edge with our students is to engage with them in the classroom. There, you’ll be able to have an intimate, frank conversation on the issues facing business today. You’ll be able to provide insights that allow students to see theoretical concepts at play in the real world. You also give current students a firsthand look at their post-MBA possibilities. Not to mention, you’ll build close ties with our leading-edge faculty members, whose work continually drives current business practice.
