Career Network Night
In partnership with Foster Alumni Relations, this annual networking event provides employers an exclusive opportunity to create connections, share career advice, and discuss industry trends with Foster students.
Connect with students on-campus during a lunchtime class break (12:30-1:20pm) or in the evening hours (5:30-7pm) to present information about upcoming opportunities and a “day in the life” at your organization. Learn more about info sessions.
Via office hours, students are able to schedule informational interviews with an employer to learn about “a day in the life” at the organization and any upcoming internship and/or full-time opportunities. Office hours are customizable based on employer needs and availability. We offer space in our career suite or can assist you in holding office hours virtually.
Management 430 Case Competition
The Foster School partners with Seattle’s thriving and innovative business community to develop forward-looking, customized cases centered on a current strategic issue. This required capstone course, Strategic Business Management (MGMT 430), taken during one quarter of senior year, positions student teams in front of executives to make formal presentations on their recommendations.
Undergraduate Student Consultants
The Foster School offers several undergraduate courses which invite students to serve as consultants to real-world businesses. The students work in teams providing in-depth analysis and research and ultimately, recommendations to their client companies. Projects are ten weeks in duration and can range on topics from foreign market entry to comprehensive marketing plans. Learn more about undergraduate consulting opportunities.
Classes and programs with consulting components pair students with actual businesses to solve real-world issues. Students gain experience in working with time constraints on deliverables, industry research analysis, and business communications—including delivering formal presentations. All skills are immediately transferable to the working world.
Primarily at the beginning of Autumn recruiting season, Mock interviews are a great way to brand your organization while meeting Foster students preparing for interview season.
Student Clubs Connections/Events
Career Services works closely with the many student-run business clubs that sponsor panel discussions and other activities. These events provide a perfect venue for you to interact directly with our students. See our list of undergraduate clubs.
Foster Career Services will introduce employers to faculty members to discuss how they may engage with students within the classroom.
