That efficiency spills over into every aspect of running the business school, including recruiting efforts. When P&G comes to campus, Gerlach Hall's interview rooms can always accommodate our needs.”

Recruiting the recruiters—
a critical factor in hiring success
-

More than 300 companies visit Ohio State’s campus annually to interview Fisher College of Business undergraduate and graduate students for internships, co-ops and career positions. In surveys, recruiters from companies such as General Mills and Goodyear indicate that they hire Fisher students primarily because of past employment successes and the college’s academic reputation. Last year, they added an “excellent recruiting environment” to the list.

The new Career Services center located in Gerlach Hall houses the latest in resume and job listing technology, as well as career information and counseling services. Students are able to sign up for on-campus interviews 24 hours a day, while recruiters are able to access student resumes and post current job openings online.

The center contains ten private interview rooms and meeting areas for recruiters to talk to job candidates, with Internet access, phone, fax and copier, providing a “virtual office” to accommodate recruiters’ daily business needs. “It’s no wonder that each year the number of Fisher recruiting companies grows,” says Bob Grimm of Steak ’n Shake. “Everything you need to successfully evaluate potential employees is right at your fingertips. It’s like I never left our corporate office. Except that the coffee is fresh and I can catch the latest news on CNN.”

Recruiters from Philip Morris and Ford, among others, have interviewed students via videoconferencing that allows them to meet, screen and review resumes of job candidates. On the flip side, video-on-demand allows students to view recruiting videos from the office library, enabling them to better prepare for interviews.

The new facilities also provide a waiting area, registration and computer room, library, large multi-purpose room, lounge and conference room. With all this expanded space, it’s no surprise that Andersen Consulting brings not one or two recruiters, but an entire team to greet Fisher students and put them at ease before the interview process begins.
