Do we still need to submit requests for events (presentations and chats) into 12Twenty if they are virtual and we, as the company, are hosting them?
Yes, please! We ask that you continue to coordinate through the CMG so we can help you promote and communicate the event to students, as well as avoid conflicts with class schedules and other employer events. We are happy to brainstorm and discuss best practices with you, and welcome hearing about your virtual experience this last year.
What dates and times are available for presentations and chats?
Our Recruiting Calendar includes suggested event timing based on when your interviews are being held (whether OCI or not) and our Engage Students page lists out the time frames reserved for recruiting events. The same time frames apply to both fall and spring semesters, and will be available to choose from when you request your events in 12Twenty.
We understand that some companies will choose to host “multi-school” virtual events that may not fall into our suggested time frames. We are here to find a solution with you – please talk with your relationship manager to explain your needs.
Our company doesn’t feel comfortable hosting the technology for our presentation – can CMG virtually host on our behalf?
Yes, CMG can host your presentation using our Zoom account [subject to availability]. Please coordinate with your relationship manager before submitting your event request to ensure CMG is available on your desired date/time.
- For company chats, we require that you utilize your company’s own video conference technology.
How are On-Campus Interviews (OCI) executed, if virtual?
For fall 2021, CMG will continue to support employers by confirming OCI date requests, promoting opportunities to students, monitoring the application and selection process, and finalizing interview schedules through 12Twenty. In 2020, most companies preferred to virtually host the interviews on their own platforms, but CMG is available to host your interviews via Zoom. [subject to availability – please coordinate with your relationship manager]
Can we host our own in-person events off-campus?
It is CMG’s recommendation that events be virtual in the fall to promote equality across all MBA students. However, if an employer plans to host an in-person event we ask that they provide a hybrid option so those who cannot attend in-person, for whatever reason, may still participate.
Will CMG-hosted networking events be virtual as well?
All of our annual multi-company networking events that are typically hosted in-person will be completely virtual in fall 2021. These events include:
- Haas Consulting Days: October 18-19, 2021
- Investment Banking Speed Networking Night: October 18, 2021
- URM Networking Night: Date TBD
How will club engagements be handled?
Please reach out directly to club leadership to plan activities including treks and teach-in’s. It is CMG’s recommendation that events be virtual in the fall, however, if an employer plans to host an in-person event we ask that they provide a hybrid option so those who cannot attend in-person, for whatever reason, may still participate.
Please contact your relationship manager if you need introductions made to club leadership.
