Recruiting at Booth
No two recruiting initiatives are the same. At Chicago Booth, you can rely on our Employer Relations team members to develop a plan with you and your organization - including campus and off-campus strategies - that directly correlate to your recruiting goals. Members of our Employer Relations team are industry and geographical specialists.
- Campus Recruiting - An efficient and effective way to hire for both full-time positions and summer internships, campus recruiting, which starts in the fall, gives you access to over 1,100 first- and second-year Full-Time MBA students. Eligible students in our Evening MBA and Weekend MBA programs are also able to participate in full-time recruiting.
- Off-Campus Recruiting - For many firms, recruiting timelines, budgets, and candidate profiles make off-campus recruiting a better recruiting strategy.

Approximately one-third of the Chicago Booth student body is international. International students at Chicago Booth typically hold F-1 (foreign student) or J-1 (exchange visitor student) visas.
Both visas allow students to work in the United States for summer internships, with no paperwork or extra effort required from the hiring company. For full-time employment, the employee and employer may petition for an H1-B visa through the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. The H1-B visa initially provides coverage for three years of professional employment and may be extended for an additional three years. In addition, some students use provisions for practical training periods (Curricular Practical Training and/or Optional Practical Training), to cover the "gap" between their start of work and the next H1-B cycle.
Each student's circumstances are unique, and the Full-Time Program Office and the university's Office of International Affairs (OIA) work together with students to determine available options, which may include either early or delayed graduation.
