Interview Details

Interview Formats

The CMC can customize the interview schedule to your specification but most companies choose a 30-, 45- or 60-minute format. Every interview schedule will have a 15-minute break in the morning and in the afternoon and include a complementary lunch at 12:30 pm. The day will conclude with a 15-minute "debrief." This is time reserved for our Associate Directors to get feedback about the candidates. Please use CMC Connect to review and verify your current interview schedule.

If you would like the MBA students to have two interviews by separate recruiters, we can arrange a rotating or back-to-back schedule. This will allow students to interview in one room then move to another interview room to meet with another recruiter with the same company. We can also accommodate a greeter in another room if you inform us ahead of time. Interviews are booked in the order they are received but we must also balance the number of interviews being held in any one functional area. Please visit 2016-2017 Key Dates for more information.

Second Round Interviews

Second round interviews can be held on campus or at the company’s offices. We recommend companies allow at least three business days for students to travel for second round interviews being held off campus so they have ample time to rearrange prior commitments. In addition, companies may host a pre-interview reception or dinner before conducting interviews. We can help encourage participation and avoid conflicts if we know your plans ahead of time.

Extending Job Offers

We ask recruiters to give graduating MBA students until December 7, 2016 or three weeks, whichever is longer, to respond to job offers received from on- or off-campus interviews.

First year MBA students who receive internship offers must be given until February 15, 2017 or two weeks, whichever is longer, to respond to job offers received from on- or off-campus interviews.  Employers who recruit first year MBAs at national diversity conferences, prior to spring on-campus interviews, should keep those offers open until February 15, 2017.  If your company policies related to diversity conferences vary significantly from our guidelines, please contact James Barricelli, Sr. Associate Director of Employer Relations before extending your offers. Students may accept an offer before the dates outlined above if they so desire; however, they cannot be obligated to respond sooner.
