Building Visibility on Campus

There are a variety of avenues available to help your firm create a presence on campus: company presentations; Career Development classes and seminars; topical discussions with student clubs; corporate sponsorship and involvement in student conferences.

Company Presentations

Company presentations, sponsored by the MIT Sloan Career Development Office, are a popular and effective way to inform and educate students about your organization and the career options available within your firm. For the 2014 – 2015 academic year, presentations targeting both full-time and internship hiring will begin September 29 and end on December 5, 2014.

Companies may choose from the following two options for their company presentation:

Evening Presentations

Well-known organizations and companies with a successful history of hiring at MIT Sloan usually find evening presentations most effective. Held in the evening at a nearby hotel, evening presentations are a great opportunity for company representatives, especially MIT Sloan alumni, to interact with students. Typically, a firm begins with a 45-minute presentation, followed by a reception where students and company representatives can speak informally. Companies are responsible for reserving space and arranging catering with a local hotel or restaurant for breakfast and evening presentations. Take a look at our list of venues for locations closest to campus.

Lunchtime Presentations

Brown-bag lunches held in MIT Sloan classrooms are an easy and informal way for companies, both new and familiar to the School, to meet students. The lunches start at noon and are held in classrooms. You have approximately 50 minutes (11:45 a.m. — 12:45 p.m.), which allows for a 25 — 30 minute presentation and 15 — 20 minutes of questions. For brown-bag lunches, the CDO recruiting team makes the room, catering, and audio-visual arrangements for you. Your company is responsible for the charges associated with the lunch. Company materials may be shipped to our office prior to your lunch presentation at the address below.

Please call the CDO recruiting team at 617-253-6149 to discuss the best presentation format for your organization. Presentation dates must be confirmed with the CDO recruiting team before booking a venue.

Advertising Company Presentations

Please send a short e-mail announcement that publicizes your event to students to your industry contact. Your announcement should include the presenter(s), location, time, date and the types of positions for which you are hiring (full-time, summer internships or both). We further encourage you to specify the intended audience for your company presentation based on your firm's hiring policies (for example, if your firm is unable to hire non-U.S. students, it is best to let students know about this policy). This text will be posted on the home page of our centralized career database. Please note that we are unable to forward attachments to the entire student body.
