Five days ago I received an email from Princeton University Career Services. Here’s an excerpt:
For those planning to find a job, NOW is the time to prepare for on-campus recruiting! Employers from private, public, and non-profit organizations come to campus in the fall to host information sessions and/or interview seniors for full-time positions. Employer events are a great opportunity to network ! with recruiting organizations and to gain valuable company information and interviewing advice.
Know that different industries have different recruiting timelines. In general, consulting, finance, and technology companies tend to recruit the earliest. Be prepared to apply for these positions in September. Please note that many of the larger banks will NOT be recruiting on-campus for full-time positions this fall.
Whatever and whomever you decide to thank for this – whether it’s your god, probability theory, the economy, or the constant bombardment of mic-checks throughout the nation and the world – well, yay.
