Information for Employers

Welcome to the University of Montana College of Business (COB) Career Development Program. Our job is to connect employers with students.

The College of Business  has an office dedicated to the professional development of its students. The mission of the Career Development program is to provide students with the best possible chance to be competitive in the business world by providing workshops; practice interviews; resume critiques; networking events to build their professional network; and effective job search advice from expert staff, business owners, and human resource managers. We give employers the valuable opportunity to get to know students by providing campus visits, class visits, and the opportunity to host office hours. 

Descriptions of Programs

Offered twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.  This program allows students to meet with employers so that the employer can provide feedback to them on their resumes and practice interview skills.  Employer feedback is an enormous boost to a young professional’s ability to market themselves and that is what makes this event so successful! In addition to helping future business people develop, these programs also remain a great recruiting tool and offer good visibility for your organization.  If you would like to sign up to volunteer please email Laura Stinger at laura.stinger@mso.umt.edu 

Send your current openings to Laura Stinger at Laura.Stinger@mso.umt.edu and we will get the word out for you!

"University of Montana students are a pleasure to have in the recruiting process. UM students are well prepared, both technically and interpersonally, for a career in public accounting. They are ambitious, eager to learn and contribute, and have an unparalleled work ethic. Why? I think it has a lot to do with the COB faculty and staff. They are engaged in the recruiting process and are invested in their student's success as professionals."  KPMG
