Chicago Colleges Say Recruiters’ Interest is Up

March 29, 2004
At Northwestern University, job postings for MBAs are up 52 percent from a year ago. It’s one sign that hiring is picking up on college campuses.

Crain’s Chicago Business says that the University of Chicago’s business school is seeing about a 10 percent increase in the number of interviews conducted by employers. The school compared statistics from late last year to 2002.

Roxanne Hori, assistant dean of Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, says “the demand is there for talent. Every week, I must get three to five calls--just me--asking how to post a job, how to find an intern, how to hire someone right out of the program.”
