My eager readers are probably asking themselves that very question. Sorry for the short absence. I temporarily fell out of the blogosphere after several consecutive days on the road, but don’t worry… Kara is back!
Back from NSHMBA in Chicago, where I garnered a great deal of valuable information for our MBAs. Back from some exciting companies right here in Louisiana (e.g. Iberia Bank in Lafayette and JP Morgan Private Wealth Management in Baton Rouge) who are looking for BSMs and MFINs. Back from a growing public accounting firm in Baton Rouge that wants busy season MACCNT interns. And back from a few interesting meetings in Charlotte and Atlanta with the likes of Duke Energy, Wells Fargo, Coca Cola and Georgia Commerce Bank.
The resounding message from the road remains that there are ample recruiting opportunities for undergraduate candidates. Companies are hiring MBAs, but it’s tough out there and you really have to work it and do a significant amount of networking if you are to distinguish yourself from the competition.
It has been a whirlwind! But this week I’ll be hunkered down closer to the home front and catching you up on what you missed at NSHMBA and my other recent visits. Tune in!
