Space is reserved Monday through Thursday at 6:30-8 p.m. for information sessions in Rawls Hall. We strive to schedule only one per evening. Although we cannot prohibit other demands on the student’s time, we will not schedule during exams or other major known conflicts. Unfortunately, current Krannert class schedules do not allow for lunch hour presentations.
Second-year recruiting begins in September and continues through early December. Companies that set second-year recruiting schedules in January or later should anticipate a smaller number of available candidates.
Recruiting for internships begins after the Master’s Job Fair in the fall and continues through spring. The majority of internship interviewing occurs December through February.
Held every year in September, the Krannert Master’s Career Fair is an ideal way to build your company’s brand on campus and meet top talent. Because of our strong curricular emphasis, you will find our students to be well prepared to meet your business needs. Both full-time and internship-seeking students will be in attendance.
Normal interview lengths are 30, 45 or 60 minutes. The standard interview would be on a Monday through Thursday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday interviews are rare and are approved on a case-by-case basis. Students seeking internships and those in one-year programs are frequently required to attend special programs on Fridays. Many students use Friday for site visits, case competitions, career fairs, etc. We will attempt to accommodate interview schedule adjustments with prior notice.
Please provide the length of time you desire for your interviews and if the student will be required to participate in back-to-back interviews. The Krannert Professional Development Center (KPDC) will generate the schedule online. When you determine the candidates you wish to interview, indicate they are invited or are alternates within our online system. Students are notified by email, and they may sign up online for a specific time slot when sign-up opens. After invitees are given the opportunity to sign up, alternates are eligible to take any vacant spots.
Submit your closed list (pre-selects) at least 10 days prior to your interview date. If your closed list is late, it may impede the sign-up of students you wish to interview. A hard copy of your schedule and student resume will be available no later than the morning of your interview.
Arrange your travel so the schedule can be completed as planned. It is usually not possible to reschedule students the day of the interview. Allow at least two hours after the conclusion of the interview day if you are returning to Indianapolis International Airport.
Criteria used for screening can be helpful in determining eligibility, but the most efficient method is a resume collection where students submit resumes in response to a job description. We can assist you in posting jobs for master’s students. You may also pull filtered resume books from CMA, searching for keywords such as: current student, 1st year MBA, seeking internship, with a primary concentration in Finance, holding F-1 visa, or “Mandarin.”
Recruiters cannot ask interview questions that could be construed as unethical, illegal or in violation of personal privacy, such as questions related to race, age, marital status, religion, handicap, national or ethnic origin, or his/her sexual orientation.
Please inform students of their status (regret, or invite to site) within the time frame you mention in the campus interview. Students appreciate receiving this within two weeks after the interview if possible.
Submit your offer in writing, and to ensure that students have the opportunity to make a thoughtful decision, do not request students to accept offers before the designated deadline. Most students prefer to interview through the entire recruiting season before accepting an offer. We request that full-time offers (and full-time offers received from an internship) be kept open until December 1 or four weeks from the verbal or written offer, whichever date is later. Internship offers should be kept open until February 1 or four weeks from the verbal or written offer, whichever date is later. We encourage you to keep this in mind when asking students to respond to an offer.
Exploding offers are strongly discouraged as a means to bring about an early acceptance. Job offers must remain open (including base salary, bonuses, etc.) until the deadline to accept the offer. Changing or withdrawing job offers violates professional standards and Krannert’s recruiting policy.
Students who accept an offer then renege are subject to suspension of recruiting privileges.
