UVA Darden Career Development Launches Recruiting Tips Podcast
By Mary Shea Watson
Heading into winter break after finishing their second quarter exams, the University of Virginia Darden School of Business Class of 2021 must now prepare for another exciting challenge: interviewing with among the nearly 100 companies arriving on the School’s Charlottesville Grounds in early January to recruit for internships. Students are practicing the notoriously difficult case interview with classmates, delving into an invaluable wealth of company research tools available in Darden’s Camp Library and continuing to network in order to land a summer internship.
In an effort to help students in their searches for MBA internships, Casey Floyd (GEMBA ’17), senior director of careers in general management, operations and marketing, recently launched a new podcast series titled “The Employer Perspective.” In the series of 15-minute episodes, Floyd incorporates her expertise in employer engagement, MBA recruiting and career coaching in discussions with Darden recruiters about topics ranging from appropriate interview attire to effective storytelling during behavioral interviews.
New episodes will launch on a regular basis in early 2020.
Episode 1 of The Employer Perspective: Interviewing Basics with Bankers
Mystery guests from a leading investment bank and Floyd highlight strategies for students to implement in order to tackle tough behavioral and technical interview questions. Together, they provide actionable insights to use not just in investment banking interviews, but across multiple topics.
Episode 2 of The Employer Perspective: Interviewing Basics with Capital One
Justin Lee, Capital One principal associate, campus recruiting, joins Floyd on the podcast to discuss themes such as how to make a great first impression before an interview and interview techniques used by Capital One, among other topics.
