WUSTL business students “Meet the Firms” in third week of classes

At Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis students begin preparing for their job search before they even start classes and by the third week are already involved in their first career fair.

More than 75 companies will visit Olin on three separate days in early September for the annual Meet the Firms event, which connect recruiters and alumni with Olin students. The event begins with an upscale career fair followed by a networking reception.

Companies attending include Accenture, Anheuser-Busch, Capital One, Edward Jones, General Mills, Motorola, Pepsi Co/Frito Lay, Republic of Tea, Target, Wells Fargo and more.

The Meet the Firms event on Sept. 13 will provide great visuals and interview opportunities with undergraduates, graduate and MBA students, career counselors and economics professors who can talk about the job outlook for business school graduates.
