Virtual Event Formats
Frequently Asked Questions
The following are the most common questions we have been getting about general virtual recruiting at Wharton. You can find more information and best practices for specific virtual events by clicking the events above. If you have any additional questions, please contact us!
WHAT MEETING OR TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM SHOULD I USE?
Your team will be managing the events on the day of. For larger events, this may include sharing informational slides, managing breakout rooms, monitoring the chat for Q&A, etc. For these reasons, we recommend using whatever platform you are most comfortable with.
That being said, Zoom is the most popular among students. Whatever platform you do choose, we will make sure CareerPath is updated with log-in details and any other information students may need ahead of the event.
HAVE THERE BEEN ANY CHANGES TO RECRUITING POLICIES?
Interview timelines and key recruiting dates, including Earliest Decision Dates, remain the same. Click here to review our Recruiting Policies.
SHOULD I RECORD MY EMPLOYER INFORMATION SESSION OR OTHER LARGE EVENTS?
We encourage you to record all large live events (panels, information sessions, etc.). Students may be located outside of Philadelphia during the Fall semester and may have difficulty attending some live events due to time zones. MBACM can help market recordings to students and can house them on our password-protected student website.
I'M HOSTING A MULTI-SCHOOL EVENT BEFORE FIRST YEAR RECRUITING BEGINS ON OCTOBER 18. CAN I INVITE WHARTON STUDENTS?
Yes. We understand companies may be taking a more centralized approach to recruiting this year and MBACM is happy to help market many of the multi-school, non-evaluative events taking place during Q1 to our students. We also encourage you to record these sessions and offer multiple days so that as many students as possible can participate. Any Wharton-specific, small group or individual chats with first year students must take place after October 18, 2021.
If you’re hosting a multi-school event, please reach out to your Relationship Manager.
