Introducing your organisation to MBA students and alumni
Here are some easy ways to attract students to your business and to your vacancies
Sponsor a student project
Sometimes employers use the Consultancy Challenge and Corporate Challenge projects to introduce their companies to students as a precursor to considering a more permanent role. The arrangement gives each party an excellent opportunity to assess suitability, fit, cultural match and career potential. Many students in the past have received full-time offers of work from their sponsor organisations following a successful project.
Project sponsors should note that being in a position to offer a job following a project is not a prerequisite for sponsoring a student team – all that is required is an interesting brief requiring consultancy by Masters-level students who already have at least three years' work experience.
