On-Campus MBA Recruiting
Nothing is more valuable than a face-to-face interview between a prospective employer and employee. Tuck offers several resources and opportunities to connect with students year-round. These include traditional on-campus interviews here at Tuck as well as alternative processes to help you find the best people for your organization. Regardless of approach, we will work with you to develop the most effective and efficient path to find the employees you seek.
Your job descriptions can be the most important information you provide to students. They should offer an overview of your company, the day-to-day job responsibilities, the educational background and experience required, expected career progression, and any special hiring requirements, such as work authorization or language skills. Post job descriptions online.
Annual résumé databases of Tuck's first- and second-year students are available online. Also available is our Tuck alumni résumé database.
Booking On-Campus Interviews
Recruiting schedule: Scheduling for on-campus interviews begins in April for the following academic year. The majority of second-year interviewing takes place between mid-October and mid-November; first-year interviewing begins in late January, with the majority of interviewing completed by mid-March. However, we can arrange interviews at other times throughout the year.
First-round interviews: All first-round interviews on campus are coordinated through the Career Development Office.
Second-round interviews: Space permitting, you are welcome to use Tuck facilities for second-round interviews conducted on the same or next day as the initial interview. If you plan to return for a second round at a later date, you may reserve rooms on campus as space permits, or you may conduct your interviews at The Hanover Inn.
Interview schedules: Interviews usually take 30 or 45 minutes, but we will work with you to customize your schedule if you have different interview requirements. Your company may pre-select up to half of the students you wish to interview at Tuck. The remainder of your interview slots will be scheduled through an open student bidding process. Alternately, you may opt to have all your interviews open through the bidding process. When booking your interviews, please indicate your preference for 100 percent open or 50 percent open and 50 percent closed.
Invitation lists: If you request 50 percent closed (preselect) interviews, our confirmation email to you will indicate the number of slots available for invitations. You may also include a prioritized alternate list from which we will fill spots if any interviews are declined.
Once You've Booked Your Interviews
Your interview schedule: Prior to your interview date, you can view your preliminary interview schedule. Please be aware that changes to the schedule may occur up to the day of the interview. As early as possible before your interview date, please email the names and titles of your company's interviewers to the Career Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interview day and wrap-up: On the day of your interviews, please check in at the Career Development Office at least 30 minutes before your first interview. Our office is located on the ground floor of the Murdough Center. When you check in, we will provide you with a final interview schedule and a copy of each student's résumé before walking you to your interview room.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss your interview process and address any questions you might have.
