Recruiting at Wharton
Frequently Asked Questions
The following are the most common questions we have been getting about general recruiting at Wharton. You can find more information and best practices for specific events by clicking the events above. If you have any additional questions, please contact us!
WHAT TYPE OF EVENT SHOULD I HOST?
Your industry Relationship Manager will be the best point of contact to help strategize an employer specific Wharton MBA Recruiting experience. Employers are welcome to host Employer Information Sessions, Coffee Chats, and Educational Club events, either in-person or virtually. While accomdations can be made to support remote events, we encourage employers to visit campus for the best possible engagement.
HOW CAN I HOST A VIRTUAL EVENT?
Please register for this event in CareerPath, and indicate the location as virtual. On the day of the event, employers are expected to manage their technical logistics. 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.
Whatever platform you do choose, please make sure CareerPath is updated with log-in details and any other information students may need ahead of the event.
I'M HOSTING A MULTI-SCHOOL EVENT BEFORE FIRST YEAR RECRUITING BEGINS. 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 (please refer to the recruiting calendar for Q1 dates). 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 First Year Recruiting begins.
If you’re hosting a multi-school event, please reach out to your Relationship Manager.
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.
