Every B-School seems to have the same words of wisdom:

While at School, network like crazy, and you will surely land in a job.


Now the questions is: How exactly does that networking work? Who is sitting idle to "network" with you current MBA students ( cum job seekers) without any plausible benefit in return? Probably, job search agencies can help you better than school's Career Services or alumni base....

Agreed, internationals face tough competition from locals in securing local (Minneapolis based) jobs.

I want to know: how can internationals pursue job opportunities with companies that do not visit campus and are, say, located in the west coast? How willing are companies in the west coast in recruiting internationals?

Hey all

Regarding post employment it's true not all employers in Minneapolis recruit internationals but a lot of them will interview..
Last 2 years I have seen internationals interview with
General Mills
Cargill
Ecolab ( internships and full time)
UHG ( gave an offer )
Dish

That said these have the most competition from locals to get a job hence tougher to get too but this is true for any school anywhere anyways if you have any more specific questions let me know :)

Is it true that big corporations based in Minneapolis don't even consider resumes of the foreign students? Is it "very" difficult to find job after MBA? How helpful has the career services been in helping internationals find job?

Going by this listing on post-MBA jobs, Carlson is at #20:

Even I have heard the same. Has someone done more research on post mba employnent? Spoken to alumni?

@NomadMongol said:Hi, guys!What about post-mba employment? I read one article saying that big corporations based in Minneapolis even don't consider resumes of the foreign students. Is it difficult to find job after? Thanks.
