The Texas MBA Career Services team is once again proving that they are one of the best career services teams in the country. Following a successful year as the “Seventh Best MBA Program for Job Placement” by Bloomberg Businessweek, the team is well positioned to have another banner recruiting season. We have had strong participation from our recruiters at all of our events so far and we still have many more events coming up this semester.
To kick off the New Year, we had 17 investment banks and nine consulting firms on campus to recruit during our annual MBA Super Week that took place January 10-12. Super Week is dedicated to internship recruiting within the Financial Services and Consulting industries. Super Week is held the week before spring classes begin, allowing MBA students to capture employers’ undivided attention and interview without worry of added academic and extra-curricular conflicts.
Coming up this spring, we will be holding our sixth annual Careers Now event, a “just-in-time” MBA recruiting fair for screening full-time and internship candidates. Recruiters meet with students in the morning to discuss open positions within their organization and, as appropriate, schedule brief screening interviews during the afternoon.
For those students seeking positions abroad, we will be hosting our first international virtual career fair later in the spring. Additionally, in collaboration with ten other schools, we will be participating in “Day in the Bay,” where our students and career services team will travel to the San Francisco area to interview for existing positions in that region.
In addition to the current Texas MBA Career events, there are also eleven other on-campus career fairs being hosted this spring by other colleges within The University of Texas at Austin (that MBAs can participate in).
As you can see, our Career Services team is hard at work to make sure all of our students accomplish their career goals. So far approximately 62% of our second year students have received full-time offers, while over 32% of our first year students have received internship offers for this summer. Those numbers are up from last year and we will continue to see them grow as we participate in more events in the upcoming months.
