Meet the Firms (Sep-Nov ’14): At a glance

**Last updated 8 Oct — added Nike and EDF**

Fellow UW Foster MBA students!  The “Meet the Firm” schedule has been posted through November, and by now you should all have your resumes and profiles up on our various career sites (if not, check your emails for instructions!).  I reviewed the list of upcoming info sessions and split them up by industry/job function as best as I could and sorted them by date.  Every company has full-time, post-grad, and internship opportunities unless otherwise noted.  Hope this helps you with your career exploration and internship hunt!

See the full schedule, RSVP, and stay up to date on the Foster MBA Jobs site
