FALL RECRUITING

Gaining traction on the job search during fall quarter can be difficult. On top of easing back in the class and homework routine, you’re trying to figure out how to market your degree and experience to employers, and deciding what sort of career you’d like to pursue. Below are some recommendations on where to start when seeking out job and internship opportunities.

RECRUITMENT TIMELINES

The earlier you’re able to create a job-search plan, the better. In addition to attending workshops, where you can get resume advice, meet employers, and start thinking about next steps, there are a number of online resources available to iSchool students. Dean put together this document, which outlines a general timeline of the consulting and tech-related recruiting cycles, example organizations and job titles within those fields, and relevant career events on campus. Note that most applications for the Big Four consulting firms are due this Thursday, Oct. 4, by 11:59pm.

If you don’t get a job or internship offer in the fall, you still have plenty of time. While fall quarter is noticeably abuzz with employer recruitment events, particularly for tech and consulting roles, we regularly see students receiving offers throughout the academic year and even into summer.

The best thing you can do at this point in the year is determine some specific opportunities you might be interested in pursuing. Then, find out when you’ll need to apply and develop a plan of action accordingly. Continue reading
