- Develop customized recruiting programs and strategies.
- Promote a presence on campus through programming and events.
- Schedule and publicize on-campus receptions and presentations.

This familiarity with our MBAs and industry expertise makes the recruiting process as seamless as possible, whether planning a recruiting reception, coordinating a company tour, or scheduling interviews.
Connecting with MBAs

We encourage you to host Georgia MBAs for a tour at your company. These events provide excellent networking opportunities while allowing students to absorb company culture. To schedule a tour of your company, simply contact us.
Conduct a Company Information Session
Build awareness of your brand by informing MBAs about your company, your industry, and potential roles for graduates and interns. Our campuses are equipped with virtual presentation capabilities so you may simultaneously present to, and interact with, MBA students.

Present in a Class
Terry faculty welcome offers to speak in the classroom. To facilitate connections between recruiting organizations and professors, email the following information to the FTMBA Career Management Center:
- A brief bio of the proposed speaker.
- A summary of the presentation topic.
- The appropriate course (or type of course).
We advise submitting your presentation proposal by July 1 or December 1 (1–2 months in advance of the start of the academic term) so faculty can consider your suggestion before finalizing the course syllabus.
Post Jobs and Opportunities
We can manage your job and internship postings, or you can control them directly in Handshake, our online recruiting system. Handshake allows you to:
- Post job and internship positions free of charge to Georgia MBA students and alumni.
- Manage the on-campus recruiting process from job posting and résumé collection to selecting and interviewing candidates.
- Participate in Employer Showcases: Host targeted information sessions followed by deeper one-on-one conversations with Georgia MBA students about your organization. Many companies use these sessions to pre-screen candidates for interviews.
Interview Students on Campus
We offer dedicated space to interview students on our Athens campus (Monday through Friday). To schedule on-campus interviews, contact the FTMBA Career Management Center by phone at 706-542-3524.
We developed MBA Employer Policies to ensure a fair and equal opportunity for all potential employers to interact and connect with Georgia MBA students. We require all on-campus employers electronically sign to indicate your organization’s agreement to abide by our Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy. Georgia MBA students agree to a Code of Professional Conduct before joining the MBA class.
