Matt Compton's Job Search
Matt Compton wrestles with the problems of a post-MBA job search and finds himself captivated by the aggressive recruiting tactics of the large management consulting firms. The case raises issues of how a passive job search that relies on options presented by recruiters can be seductive and less troublesome than a proactive approach. But, in the long run, it may not be in the student's best interests.
