Recruiters Highly Rank Isenberg Undergrads
September 29, 2016
Every semester, we elicit feedback from recruiters that come to Isenberg to interview undergrads (that’s you!). We ask them questions about their overall experience, their experiences with our students, and their experiences with the Chase Career Center. We in the Dean’s Office and in the Chase Career Center compile, review, and evaluate this feedback every week throughout the semester. We also examine trends across academic years.
Here are some of the results from the Spring 2016 semester:
How would you grade Isenberg students on the following attributes? Scale 0 (Poor) to 10 (Excellent)
Knowledge of Position(s)
Knowledge of Company
Knowledge of Industry
Quality of Resumes
Ability to Effectively Answer Interview Questions
Recruiters rate Isenberg students highly, particularly in the areas of professional attire, academic knowledge, and quality of resumes. As an Isenberg undergraduate, you should be proud that well-known organizations are impressed with your professional presence and your business knowledge!
But here at Isenberg, we are not satisfied with just high ratings. We want outstanding ratings. We want recruiters to be consistently impressed with our top-caliber students. We want companies to overwhelmingly recommend recruiting at Isenberg. We want YOU to stand out as truly remarkable candidates.
And that’s why we are calling on Isenberg students to bring it. This semester, when you interview, come to the Chase Career Center for guidance. We will help you look sharp, act sharp, and be sharp. Know the company, know the industry and know the position you are interviewing for. Build a connection with your recruiter before you even enter the interview room; Chase will help you do this! We will help you tailor your resume to the job and practice for your interview. We will guide you on what to research, what questions to ask, and what to expect in the interview process.
