  • Several negative comments
    • Mobbing recruiters
    • Lingering around recruiters
    • Redundant questions from presentation
    • Students unprepared to talk intelligently about bank
    • Respect for normal social etiquette
    • Poor communication skills from international students

  • 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
