Deloitte will be extending the application period for its Case Competition until September 17th, 2009. Students are strongly encouraged to apply for this unique opportunity. This is the first year that the competition is open to undergraduates and will allow those students selected to showcase the Business Honors Program.
Case competitions are a great way to distinguish yourself during the internship and full-time recruiting processes. Companies use events like these to help identify candidates they hope to interview for their full-time positions. If you are considering the consulting career path, you should definitely not miss the chance to participate in this competition. Also, you have the chance to win $3,500 with your case competition team!
Below is the note from Deloitte:
Business Honors Program Juniors,

• Summarize appropriate conclusions
• Contribute to the creation of team presentations and other documents
• Demonstrate strong communication skills and the ability to convey complex ideas in clear, concise fashion
