Where's Nate?

living large in the four-oh-eight. wicked large.


the magic of recruiting.

I attended my first CPG corporate presentation this evening to learn more about how I could do brand management for the rest of my life. On-campus recruiting at Ross is a very structured process, akin to a dance. You have to tuck in your shirt, sign in to prove that you didn't miss the presentation, press the flesh with company representatives, and ask intelligent questions.

Then you get free stuff. Tonight I walked off with a bag from the unnamed CPG company and filled it with containers of soup and countless packets of tuna. I guess I know what I'll be eating for lunch. For the next few weeks.

I'm coming to realize that the on-campus job search might not be for me. The companies I am interested in learning more about don't typically make the trek to Ann Arbor. I guess it's hard for small to medium size tech companies to justify a costly trip in search of a tiny number of MBA Interns at a school known primarily for Marketing, Finance, and General Management.

This is not to say I won't be able to find a job. Rather, it's clear that a job won't find me.
