In addition to the opportunities below, build your organization's campus brand and develop business students’ career readiness by supporting the Business Career Center. To discuss these opportunities, please contact the Business Career Center at 414.288.7927 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post Jobs & Internships
Through Handshake, employers may post descriptions for intern and full time employment opportunities and schedule on-campus interviews. This resource is free for employers.
Recruiting through on-campus interviews is an excellent way to connect with talented students and enhance your organization’s on-campus brand. The majority of on-campus interviews will be held in the Career Services Center’s professional interview suites. Business Career Center staff are happy to discuss on-campus interview processes with you and to schedule a visit to Marquette University! On-campus interview requests may be entered through Handshake.
The MU Career Services Center hosts technical and non-technical fall career fairs, providing opportunities to gain exposure to the entire student population. Career fair registration is managed through Handshake.
The Wisconsin Private College Career Consortium (WIPCCC) also hosts an annual career fair For more information about the WorkForce Career & Internship Fair, please visit the WIPCCC employer information page.
For spring 2021, all multi-employer events hosted by Marquette University will take place virtually for the health and safety of all participants. Many events will be held through Handshake. Learn more about the Handshake career fair platform here: Virtual Fairs in Handshake (a guide for employers).
Visit Campus: Publicity & Events
Business Career Center staff are happy to help organizations visit campus to connect with and recruit students. There is no charge for these services. Please contact our office to discuss scheduling.
Schedule a Publicity Table (not recommended for spring 2021): Organizations may reserve a table in the College of Business Administration entry or first floor lobby. Publicity tables are most effective when an organization is promoting the company and an opportunity (a job, internship, case competition, office visit, etc.). To schedule a publicity table, the Business Career Center requires that employers:
- Post a job or internship opportunity or event (case competition, open house, etc.) within Handshake.
- Comply with the principles for professional practice as outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
- Not charge fees to the student to apply to or begin working with the organization.
Promotion: To promote your visit to campus, Business Career Center staff will:
- Post your table date, time and recruitment focus to the Handshake career website.
- Include your table in the weekly newsletter emailed to all business students for the two weeks prior to your table.
- Highlight your table in a PowerPoint slide shared with faculty announcing events within the coming week. Faculty will often post these slides to course websites or at the beginning of class.
Scheduling Considerations: Most organizations will visit campus for 3-5 hours. We recommend scheduling a table Mondays-Thursdays as fewer classes are scheduled on Fridays. To consider your lobby table dates and times to align with students in specific courses or majors, please consider reviewing the MU class schedule website. Student traffic is busiest during the times between classes. Starting your lobby table 15-20 minutes before a time when classes change is a way to efficiently maximize your time on campus.
Reservation Maximums: To provide opportunities for students to connect with a range of employers, the Business Career Center will schedule a maximum of three lobby table dates per organization prior to October 15th and March 15th. After October 15th and March 15th, organizations may schedule additional lobby tables as availability permits.
Next Steps: Please respond to this email or call our office at (414) 288-7927 to share the dates and times you would like to consider for your table.
Host an Information Session
Organizations may reserve a room in the business school or University Career Services Center for an information session. Organizations often host information sessions before an application deadline or in the day or two before an on-campus interview. For spring 2021, we strongly advise hosting your information session virtually utilizing MS Teams, Zoom, WebEX, etc. Please contact our office if you have questions.
Working with the Business Career Center staff to schedule your event.
We look forward to working with organizations to schedule recruitment and branding events on campus. We will be best able to help with scheduling and publicity for lobby tables and information sessions with at least two weeks' notice. Events may be scheduled with less notice, but as a result, there will be less time for publicity.
If your organization is interested in creating a new or larger-scale campus event, confirming the date and goals with the Business Career Center one month prior to the start of each semester will enable us to help your organization most effectively (especially for events that will require multiple room reservations and a larger campus catering order). For larger events, the campus catering menu and AV rental costs are listed on the Event Management website
Career Event Calendar
Employers participate in numerous career-focused events each year. Please review regularly-occurring events within the College of Business Administration through the links below and contact Business Career Center staff if you have any questions.
LEAD Career Course Involvements
The LEAD 1050, 2000 and 3000 career courses are required of all College of Business Administration undergraduates and provide great opportunities for employers to connect with and support students. Spring 2021 opportunities include:
- LEAD 3000 Practice Interviews:The LEAD 3000 course consists of mainly juniors and seniors, and all students complete a practice interview to enhance interview preparation with industry-specific feedback. Within 40 minutes with each student, employer volunteers interview students for 25 minutes and then give the student feedback on their interview skills and resume. There is no pressure for an employer to make any type of offer to the student regarding an internship or job, but volunteers are most welcome to take advantage of the connection by following up with students who make excellent impressions! Spring 2021 interviews will be conducted virtually on Feb. 8, 10, 11 and 12. Morning (9am-noon), afternoon (1-4pm) and full day (9am-noon & 1-4pm) time slots are available. If you are interested in supporting students' interview preparation, please contact Karen Rinehart.
- Additional Course Involvement Opportunities are available through the Business Career Center Employer Engagement Program. Please contact Karen Rinehart to discuss this opportunity further.
Attending Student Organization Meetings is an excellent way to meet with students in focused group settings.
