campus annually to interview Fisher College of Business undergraduate
and graduate students for internships, co-ops and career positions.

Services center located in Gerlach Hall houses the latest

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.

team to greet Fisher students and put them at ease before the
interview process begins.
