Over 140 companies travel to Charlottesville, Virginia, each year to recruit Darden MBA students. Top companies visit Darden several times a year to participate in company briefings, networking nights, on-Grounds interviews, career conferences and more. Company Briefings Darden hosts approximately 100 company briefings each year. Company briefings are a great opportunity for you to learn about a company’s brand image, culture and job opportunities. Company briefings also allow you to network directly with company representatives. Company Networking Nights The Career Development Center organizes several Networking Nights each year, as well as lunches and other meeting opportunities. These evening events are designed to connect company representatives with students to discuss available opportunities and share insights and experiences. On-Grounds Interviews Most companies post job and internship opportunities prior to their visit, and Darden students can apply and, if invited, interview for the positions while the companies are on-Grounds.
