    • Lingering around recruiters

    • Redundant questions from presentation

    • Students unprepared to talk intelligently about 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
