On-Campus Recruiting


All recruiting activities are managed through our online recruiting system, Handshake. Interviewing provides a traditional method for employers to visit campus personally to meet pre-selected candidates using the following steps and ideal timeline:

  • 4 weeks prior to interview date, students view your job description(s) on Handshake.
  • 3 weeks prior, resumes of students who have applied for your position(s) are sent to you via email.
  • 2 weeks prior, you select candidates you wish to interview and students sign up for time slots.  

Telephone and video conference (virtual) interviews are available.  To schedule, click here.

Business Expo Career Event

discussing the expoThe Darla Moore School of Business's Office of Career Management hosts two annual Business Expo's each spring and fall in Columbia. The event is open to organizations who have full-time and/or internship opportunities available for business students. 

More than 900 graduate and undergraduate students attended Business Expo - Fall 2015, with over 150 recruiters (77 employers) participating.

This networking event provides employers the opportunity to meet students from the nationally ranked International MBA (IMBA) program, master's level students in Human Resources (MHR), International Business (MIB), Accelerated MBA (AMBA), Economics (MaEcon), Accounting (MACC), and experienced candidates from our Professional MBA (PMBA) program. Employers will also meet qualified undergraduate students, including those enrolled in the nationally ranked undergraduate international business program.

Information Sessions and Lobby Displays

Interest-Generating Information Sessions
This type of information session/reception is usually scheduled 4-5 weeks prior to on-campus interviews. The purpose is to introduce your available positions to targeted students determining both the candidates' qualifications and cultural fit. This is especially important in creating campus awareness if you have not previously recruited at the Moore School.

Pre-Interview Information Sessions
Many employers prefer to conduct information sessions the night before an interview date. Information sessions allow you to tell your organization's story one time, so interview time is better spent on interacting with talented candidates.

Lobby Displays
A lobby display table is a great way for companies to promote their organization to Moore School students. This allows you to interact with our student population while promoting your full-time and/or internship opportunities.
