There are many ways to interact with second-year students during the recruiting season. To schedule any of the following recruiting events, please review our event dates and submit your reservation request via Career Hub.
- Company Appointments
Company Appointments are HBS coordinated individual or small group sessions held on-campus. These scheduled meetings allow companies to meet with second-year students in assigned Spangler project rooms. Company Appointments can be scheduled through Career Hub and may begin on September 8th, 2014. Companies can choose from the following time slot durations:
- 20 minutes
- 30 minutes
- 45 minutes
- 60 minutes
Companies may initially request up to two rooms per day, as room availability varies. Spangler project rooms seat 6 people, with a maximum capacity of 10 people. Please refer to the recruiting dates for available days. Rooms are available on Mondays & Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Student sign-ups will be coordinated by HBS, through Career Hub. Students will sign-up for a time slot that does not interfere with their class schedule, thus maximizing attendance. Companies have the opportunity to reach out to students prior to the meeting to request student resumes and/or provide preliminary company information.
- Company Presentations (Off-Campus)
Company Presentations provide an excellent opportunity for a company to educate students about everything from the corporate culture to opportunities that exist for MBA students. Off-campus presentations for second-year students may begin on September 8th, 2014. All off-campus presentations must be approved through HBS Career & Professional Development and may not begin before 5:30 p.m. On-campus presentations for second-year students will not be offered this year.
- Presentations may not conflict with HBS Career & Professional Development-sponsored events.
- Off-campus presentations will be approved for 1.5 hours.
- Companies are responsible for managing all off-campus logistics.
- Industry Education Events
Industry Education Events offer companies the opportunity to engage with students on topics of interest outside of recruiting. Industry Education Events requests should be submitted via Career Hub and will be assigned a classroom on-campus. These events are limited to four per semester; two of the four can be held prior to October 27, 2014.
- Must be open to both 1st and 2nd-year students
- Events last 45 minutes and typically follow a format of 30 minutes of content followed by 15 minutes of Q & A

- Targeted Events
There are other ways to educate students about your company culture, career opportunities and recruiting practices. Examples of targeted recruiting events include receptions, coffee chats and dinners. Regardless of location and sponsor (including clubs and sections), recruiting events must be approved by HBS Career & Professional Development and adhere to our recruiting policies and guidelines.
