Employers On Campus
There are countless ways to see, meet, and hear from employers on campus throughout the year. The below programs highlight some of these opportunities, but remember to also stay connected with Babson social media, with your student organizations, and watch for publicity on the many opportunities the College community offers.
Meet with employers in a casual setting and learn about their company and potential job and internship opportunities! Held on Tuesdays in the Fall, from 5 - 6:30 p.m. in the Reynolds Campus Center along Main Street.
Held every September, Career Expo is an opportunity to meet more than 70 employers across all industries. It’s a great way to network with employer representatives and to learn about job opportunities available.
Employer in Residence Program
CCD hosts approximately 15 employer in residence sessions each semester. This is an opportunity for you to meet with an employer individually. The purpose of the meeting can be for a resume critique, cover letter review, mock interview, or to just have a general career conversation. This is a unique opportunity for a student to receive 1:1 time with an employer. The Employer in Residence Program takes place in the Undergraduate Center for Career Development office and is typically scheduled from 1-4pm. You can find out about the program through the CCD Weekly email and also the Babson Calendar.
Employer Information Sessions
Employers schedule information sessions throughout the year as a way to meet with you and tell you about their company and hiring opportunities. This is an opportunity to network with recruiters and hiring managers. By attending an information session on-campus, you are showing the employer that you are interested in their company. A typical information session includes a brief overview of the firm followed by a Q&A session for the students. The majority of information sessions include time for networking for the students and employers.
There are several executive industry panels held throughout the year on-campus – many are sponsored by student organizations. This is an excellent way for you to hear from top level executives on relevant topics and often times there is opportunity for networking after the session. It is important to remember in addition to the panelists, there will be many others in the audience that could be key contacts in your industry. To review upcoming employer activity, make sure to review the Babson Calendar.
Held every February, the Internship Fair hosts more than 40 employers across all industries that are looking for spring and summer internship candidates. It’s a great way to network with employer representatives and to learn about internship opportunities available.

Resume Critique Night
Held each September, employer representatives and alumni return to campus to meet with students to review and critique resumes. In addition to obtaining feedback on your resume, this is another way to meet and network with employers and alumni.
