As needed basis - get ready to interview until May or June of graduation year.

I’m sure career services can assist?


Full time or internship recruiting?


Internship receuiting

Just wondering what the process is like and how it differs from consulting or IB recruiting

Consulting and IB both more structured and earlier with applications starting in October and offers culminating in January. Big tech starts applications in November/Dec, but the process is quite drawn out with offers being extended up until late April (although the majority in Feb, March). Different tech companies also have different timelines and various levels of structure in their processes from on campus recruiting pipelines to more enterprise style recruiting.
