Ways to Meet Employers
There are a number of ways throughout the school year for you to meet and interact with employers on and off campus. Employers participate in the engagement opportunities listed below in an effort to meet Babson students, so make sure to participate and attend!
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.
Held every February, Internship Fair is an opportunity to meet 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.
Employer in Residence Program
We schedule 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.
Mock Interview Program
Do you have an upcoming interview? If so, make sure to prepare by scheduling a mock interview with a CCD Career Counselor.
In addition, CCD offers students mock interview opportunities with Babson alumni who work in your industry of interest. Keep an eye out for more information about the Mock Interview Program.
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 a great way for you to network with recruiters and hiring managers. By attending an information session on-campus, you are showing the employer that you are interested in the 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.
Experience the Industry/Employer Treks
CCD hosts several Experience the Industry Company Treks throughout the Fall and Spring semester. These company visits are an opportunity for a group of students to visit 3-4 firms in one day. This provides a unique opportunity for students to meet with several representatives from the company, learn about the culture and see the physical office space.
There are several executive industry panels held throughout the year on-campus. This is a great way for you to hear from top level executives from the same industry.
To review upcoming employer activity, make sure to review the Babson Calendar.
