Employer Opportunities to Engage with Students

Our team will be happy to work with you to identify the best route for you to connect. Listed below are a few ideas for engaging with our graduate business students.  

Company Presentations:  This is an effective way to market your organization and discuss your recruiting needs.  Conducted either as an information session or a company “lunch and learn” event, these sessions are generally held in a classroom or other meeting space within the business school.  All rooms are equipped with audio/visual capabilities.  There is no cost to host a presentation for our graduate business students.  The Mays Business School has a no food policy in classrooms.  However, food may be served in the special events rooms.  In some cases, food may be served in the foyer/entry hall areas.  Our team can provide you with a list of vendors to place catering orders for delivery.

Office Hours or Coffee Chats:  Conducted as more informal small group meetings, office hours or coffee chats may be conducted in the Career Management Center conference rooms or interview suite or in other Mays Business classrooms or meeting spaces.  Coffee chats may also be scheduled at nearby off-site venues.

These provide good opportunities for former Mays students or other representatives from your company to engage in 1:1 conversation with students.   These are best utilized if conducted prior to your resume drop deadline dates.

Industry Day/Career Night Events:  These events are generally organized around a specific industry or function and are often planned as “roundtable” networking events.  It is a great way to help educate students on particular industries or roles and also connect with students while doing so.

Student Organizations:  Providing guest speakers for student organizations is a great way to build company/brand awareness.  

Career Treks:  Working together with the various graduate academic programs staff, the Career Management Center organizes travel to various cities for groups of students to explore and learn about specific industries and companies.  This allows students to be onsite and see the company up close.  If you are interested in hosting a visit, notify the employer relations team.
