MBA Interview JumpStart Program


For the past couple of years, I have participated in the MBA program’s JumpStart interview process which provides each entering student with two mock-interviews. The process includes a formal interview followed by a debriefing and coaching session. The students are more than appreciative and the conversations are usually pretty interesting — Brian Lohr and his team do a great job of sourcing talented and diverse candidates! Overall, it’s rather rewarding.

On behalf of Pat Perrella and his team in career development, I am inviting you to consider giving even just a few hours on 15 and/or 16 August, ahead of our UR Summit. They’d be grateful for whatever time you can contribute. Please see the message below for more information; there’s a simple on-line registration system (link below) should you be interested in helping.

Many thanks for your consideration.

Greetings from the University of Notre Dame MBA Department,

We are preparing to welcome our new Two Year MBA Class of 2013 to campus.  The orientation week requires each student to participate in two mock interviews to prepare the students for their job search.

I am reaching out to the friends of the MBA Career Development team asking for help with our fifth annual MBA Interview JumpStart.  This a great program for you to have the opportunity to preview MBA students prior to fall recruiting and to provide one-on-one coaching. If you are not a recruiter this is a great way to give back to Notre Dame and prepare our MBA students for interviews.  The MBA Interview JumpStart program connects volunteer practice interviewers with MBA students to provide them with immediate performance feedback and development insight.

Volunteer interviewers are provided with resources including a brief training session, interview questions, and a student performance feedback form. Volunteer for a full or partial day for the two-day on-campus event:

Two-Year MBA Interview JumpStart    August 15-16

Please click the following link for registration:

Following registration, you’ll receive a confirmation and a link to our brief online MBA Practice Interviewer Training designed to prepare you for the interviewing event. We are happy to provide a hotel room and lunch!

Program details will follow, if you have any questions please contact me.

One thought on “MBA Interview JumpStart Program

  1. This is also a great to get benefactors involved in the life of the university. I have several people to come to campus to take part in this and it makes them feel they are more involved beyond their giving to ND!
