Fall is such an enjoyable time of year at HBS – the campus is buzzing with excitement as the new school year begins. Over the past month, our office of Career and Professional Development has gotten to know the 937 members of the Class of 2016 and hear more about the myriad of interests they are intending to pursue this summer. It seems that every industry, function and location are represented as we listen to the students’ plans for their careers. With recruiting right around the corner, now is the time for the students to learn more about the opportunities available to them. Company Information Day – with more than 45 companies on campus – kicks things off in just a few weeks and marks the start of our recruiting season.
While this is a very exciting time, we realize that it is also an extremely busy time for our recruiting partners. In fact, you might wonder how to find candidates at HBS that would be a great fit for your organization. The idea of sorting through hundreds of resumes is a daunting task, especially if you are looking for specific criteria. Our office can help with this! Our class and club resume book databases allow you to search and sort by criteria that are essential to your organization. Your parameters can be tightly focused (targeting students with previous manufacturing experience hoping to pursue a career in Singapore) or broad (all students with consulting and finance experience); it is completely up to you. Additionally, do not hesitate to contact our office to talk about your recruiting goals and needs and how best to reach our students. Our goal is to help connect with you candidates that would be a great fit within your organization while maximizing the efficiency of your recruiting efforts.
The Class of 2016 resume database is available on 10/16. As always, feel free to contact our office with any questions.
