  10. Recent feedback • Not isolated and not unique to Finance Club • Several negative comments • Mobbing recruiters • Lingering around recruiters • Redundant questions from presentation • Students unprepared to talk intelligently about bank • Respect for normal social etiquette • Poor communication skills from international students • This reflects poorly on EVERYONE, including alumni. This is our Brand and we all have to PROTECT it!

  11. Action Items • Treat each presentation as a class – spend time preparing for each presentation! • Have 2-3 strong questions – listen and identify strong questions from your peers to build up your “question bank” • DO NOT MOB recruiters! • Form circles of 2-4, everyone else wait patiently behind • Ask no more than 2-3 questions or spend more than 5-8 minutes with any one recruiter • Do not repeat questions from the presentation • Respect the intended audience and your peers! • You have a very strong class – everyone needs to step-up and show recruiters the talent at Michigan

  12. Action Items • Form study groups and devise good questions and talk about banks • Utilize OCD and your peers • Remember “Luck favors the well-prepared” There is no substitution for preparation during this process International Students • Work on English by forming study groups with peers • Consider additional language courses • Practice asking questions • “It doesn’t matter how smart you are, we have found people that do not communicate well both verbally and in writing, do not do well here” IB Recruiter
