Technology, Meet Recruiting; Recruiting, Meet Technology

The Wall Street Journal recently profiled several schools "getting creative" to help their students find internships and full-time placements during these difficult economic times. Smaller programs that get fewer companies recruiting on campus and even major names like Booth and Wharton are utilizing technology to connect their students with companies across the country.

Virtual interviewing could be the future of MBA recruiting, especially for 1st round interviews. For companies, it eliminates the expense of travel as well as time away from the office. For schools, it opens the door to companies that may not consider them a "core recruiting school." 

If you are invited for a virtual interview:

  • Check all of your equipment as soon as possible. Ensure you have a fast internet connection, high quality camera, and excellent speakers available.
  • Practice your interview to make sure you’re comfortable with the set up. It’s very different from an in-person interview.
  • Look at the camera when you speak, not the image of the person. Looking at the camera makes it seem like you are making direct eye contact with the Recruiter. Eye contact is essential for making a good impression on Americans.
