From Business Week: MBAs Go Micro

“For years, small companies have had trouble competing with the larger firms that typically hire business school students, but that is starting to change. With the recession making a dent in campus recruiting, career service officers are advising students to broaden their job searches to include small businesses. Students are heeding their advice, and companies now have “access to a lot more talent than they ever had before,” says Tracee Petrillo, career services director at Babson College’s F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business. “

Benefits of smaller companies:

  • they’re hiring
  • allowing students to sit in on board meetings
  • mentorship from a top executive
  • cnadidates will be able to rise quickly up the ranks
  • ability to have an impact
  • allows the candidate to try something new

Has your business considered hiring or trying to attract an MBA grad, or seasoned manager from a large company?
