On-Campus Interviews.As with most elite graduate school programs, On-Campus Interviews are the lifeblood of the professional recruitment process at HBS. HBS uses both “Open Days” and also a dedicated interview period which typically takes place in late January for summer internship recruiting for first years and late October for full time recruiting for second years.Company Information Days.Introduced in 2008, Company Information Days are the initiation to the first-year recruiting period and feature presentations from a variety of companies over a three-day period. Each presentation is followed by a Meet & Greet that allows students and companies to interact earlier in the process. Top companies recruiting on campus include:• Consulting firms like McKinsey, Bain, and BCG• Investment banks like Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley• Large technology companies like Amazon, eBay, and Google• Consumer products companies like Procter & Gamble and General Mills

For second-year students only, HBS has created forums for recruiting partners to meet with students to discuss full-time employment opportunities beyond graduation. The idea behind Networking Nights is to segment by industry and to make the interactions as relaxed as possible, differentiating it from the more formal interview process.MBA Job Bank.The Career Services Office maintains an online job bank that allows employers to post various jobs specific to the HBS community.Résumé Books. The Career Services Office publishes Résumé Books, which are a compilation of first and second-year student résumés. These books are purchased by companies, allowing them a way to sift through the résumés of HBS students in search of a particular fit.Alumni Resources. In addition to its services for current students, HBS also features a variety of programs designed to assist alumni of the school, particularly during difficult economic times. Services such as strategy workshops, one-on-one career coaching, research support, and alumni job banks are all available to HBS graduates after they leave campus. And, the most notable efforts of outstanding HBS alumni are recognized each year through the Alumni Achievement Awards.
