Honoring your commitment to attend an event is important to the Haas brand, as well as your own brand. Take it seriously
Always sign up on CMG BEARS for the in person and virtual company presentations and chats you would like to attend. Note that signing up is a commitment to attend the entire event. No-shows reflect poorly on our school, and on you as an individual (we share the expected numbers and sign-up lists with the company representatives). Signing up and not showing up for an event also blocks a fellow student from being able to attend – please notify CMG immediately if you can’t attend and can’t remove yourself from the event.
Dress code for presentations and company chats are “business casual.” Dress code for interviews should match what you know of the company culture. Business formal (suits) are normal for all Investment Banking and Consulting roles. Business casual is usually appropriate for Tech/CPG roles unless otherwise specified by the company or Relationship Manager. If you are interviewing with a CPG company like Levi’s or Nike, it is usually recommended to wear their brand. If you are ever unsure what to wear, please reach out to the respective Relationship Manager.
If the event is in a virtual setting, make sure your video is on, stay the whole time and pay attention to the speaker. Demonstrate you are a confident, considerate team player by introducing other students around you to recruiters. Again, do not overstay your welcome with a recruiter … they will notice
Schedule your career management activities, including appointments, workshops, presentations, and interviews, during non-class times. MBA Career Management does not condone missing classes “Haas time” does not apply to interviews, presentations, or networking events. Arrive at the event 10 minutes prior to your start time. Recruiters may decline to interview you if you are late.
Alumni, employers, and those you network with are taking time out of their day to meet or interview you. Be sure to follow up promptly with a thank you note.
