Through Business Career Center staff, who specialize in serving specific industries, as well as a network of faculty liaisons to each major, the Business Career Center helps employers publicize their organizations and recruit Marquette University students and graduates.
Post Jobs & Internships
Through Handshake, employers may post descriptions for intern and full time employment opportunities and schedule on-campus interviews. This resource is free for employers.
Recruiting through on-campus interviews is an excellent way to connect with talented students and enhance your organization’s on-campus brand. The majority of on-campus interviews will be held in the Career Services Center’s professional interview suites. Business Career Center staff are happy to discuss on-campus interview processes with you and to schedule a visit to Marquette University! On-campus interview requests may be entered through Handshake.
The MU Career Services Center hosts technical and non-technical fall career fairs, providing opportunities to gain exposure to the entire student population. View a calendar of career fair dates. Career fair registration is managed through Handshake.
The Wisconsin Private College Career Consortium (WIPCCC) also hosts an annual career fair (typically in February). For more information about the WorkForce Career & Internship Fair, please visit www.wipccc.org.
Visit Campus: Publicity & Events
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.
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:
- Post your table date, time and recruitment focus to the Handshake career website.
- Include your table in the weekly newsletter emailed to all business students for the two weeks prior to your table.
- Highlight your table in a PowerPoint slide shared with faculty announcing events within the coming week. Faculty will often post these slides to course websites or at the beginning of class.
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 respond to this email 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.
Working with the Business Career Center staff to schedule your event.
We look forward to working with organizations to schedule recruitment and branding events on campus. We will be best able to help with scheduling and publicity for lobby tables and information sessions with at least two weeks' notice. Events may be scheduled with less notice, but as a result, there will be less time for publicity.
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
Career Event Calendar
Employers participate in numerous career-focused events each year. Please review regularly-occurring events within the College of Business Administration through the links below and contact Business Career Center staff if you have any questions.
Attending Student Organization Meetings is an excellent way to meet with students in focused group settings.
Connect with Faculty & Centers
Target undergraduate students whose majors are of interest to your corporation by connecting with one of our five departments or programs. Target graduate students by connecting with our Graduate School of Management. Faculty members are always interested in interacting with employers who can share business experiences with students.
Build your company’s brand on campus and impact students. The MU College of Business Administration Alumni Association (MUBAAA) and the Business Career Center coordinate annual Mentor and Office Visit Days programs.
- The Mentor Program provides an excellent opportunity for students in the junior class to learn about the world of business from a professional. Professionals with at least five years of experience are encouraged to learn more and volunteer.
- Office Visit Days is a job shadowing program for freshmen and sophomore students.
Additional Involvement Opportunities
If your organization is interested in connecting with and supporting MU students and alumni through additional involvement opportunities, please contact Business Career Center staff. In the past, employers have reviewed resumes, offered practice interviews, hosted job shadow events or site tours, and offered scholarship opportunities. Business Career Center staff look forward to discussing your interests and goals with you.
