Networking Mixers

The CMC gives students the tools to build their professional network by bringing representatives from top companies onto campus and allowing students to attend networking mixers alongside top employers. These are excellent opportunities for students to make a good impression with CMC employer partners.

Please check out our Upcoming Events page to learn about upcoming networking mixers.

Information Sessions

Information sessions are put on by employers who would like to share about their company with JSOM students. Often, an information session is held in conjunction with a job position posted on CometCareers so that the employer can meet eligible candidates for the position, or future positions, face to face. These allow students to learn about companies and also to become more than just a resume in a pile.

Please check out our Upcoming Events page to learn about upcoming information sessions.

Mock Interviews

Mock Interview Events

Mock interviews allow students to interview with multiple companies, giving them practice with their interviewing skills, and allowing them to meet and discuss their skillset and qualifications with employers from top companies. In the past, students have done mock interviews with Lennox, Farmers Insurance, JC Penney, JPMorgan Chase, Raytheon, AT&T, State Farm and many more.

Mock Interview Pod Sessions

Mock interview pod sessions are conducted with a CMC Career Development Specialist to prepare students for possible upcoming interviews or to give them confidence and feedback about their interviewing skills. These are conducted just as real interviews. We encourage students to arrive early, dressed to impress and with a hard copy of their resume, just as they would a real interview.

Please check out our Upcoming Events page to learn about upcoming mock interviews.

Registration ensures a seat at events.

Industry Forums

The CMC hosts a variety of events allowing students to interact in a Q&A format with employer representatives in either a large panel or a small group, round-table environment.
