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.
Event Publicity: When classes are in session, the BCC emails students with a newsletter. Virtual and in-person events posted to Handshake will be considered for inclusion. Contact email@example.com to request or with questions.
Schedule a Publicity Table: 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:
- Ask you to post your table date, time and recruitment focus to the Handshake career website.
- Include your table in the newsletter emailed to all business students.
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 email firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Please contact our office if you have questions.
Working with the Business Career Center staff to schedule your event.
We will be best able to help with scheduling and publicity for lobby tables and information sessions with at least two weeks' notice.
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
