A Message from Chris Dito, Senior Director
An Invitation to Engage with Our Students

Hello Recruiter,

With a new academic year upon us, we want to give you a preview of options to reach our MBA talent throughout the year.

We encourage you to meet our students by attending an event, hosting a student visit, or getting in front of them in a classroom or via video conference. No matter how you recruit—on campus or offsite—we make sure students know your company and hear your message. Recruiters engage with UC Davis MBA students in many more ways than in the past, using not only traditional on-campus and job-posting programs but alternative ways of connecting, such as our annual Networking Day in San Francisco and a range of social media tools, including our Symplicity job-posting system.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss the best methods for you to meet our students:

San Francisco Networking Day – The Career Development team has worked with top employers in the San Francisco Bay Area for students to visit the city and learn more about a specific firm. Consider hosting a group of students. (Tuesday, September 25, 2012)

Information Sessions – Present your company to our students. This is the perfect venue to promote your unique benefits and engage our students prior to interview schedules. (Year-round)

Fall On-Campus Recruiting – Come to campus to interview our MBAs with this traditional mode of screening applicants for your hiring needs.

Spring Career Fair - The Spring MBA Fair is held in San Ramon and will be on Friday, March 1.

Host students at your location – Students welcome the opportunity to meet your company’s people and to learn more about industry trends and perspectives which affect your organization. We will assist with scheduling your company site tour and help arrange transportation for the students to tour your facility. (Year-round)

Industry Launches – Industry experts share their knowledge of trends and issues within their world of work. Connect with our students in a variety of environments, ranging from a more formal lecture or panel-style presentation to a more intimate and casual brown bag format.  (September 12-25, 2012)

Mock Interviews – Consider sharing your expertise in the role of a mock interviewer or mock feedback person, as an alternative approach to screening our students with no hiring commitment. While most mock interviews occur in the fall, we welcome you as a mock interview volunteer any time. (Fall)

Virtual Interviewing – We will manage the technology so you can have better access to interviewing our students, regardless of your location. (Year-round)

Please let us know how to best meet your recruitment needs. To post an internship or career position with our office, please send us a description. We would be pleased to put your posting in front of our students.

For more information or assistance in setting-up off-campus interviews or company site tours, please contact Career Development.

Thank you again for supporting the Graduate School of Management.

Sr. Director of Career Development
