Over 150 Barney School Students Participate in Mock Interview Week and Corporate Visit Day

Each semester, the Barney School of Business holds a Corporate Visit Day for students. In October 2016, University of Hartford students attended corporate visits at partner companies Aetna, Barnum Financial, Cantor Fitzgerald, Edible Arrangements, Grant Thornton LLP, Stanley Black & Decker, and The Hartford. 

These corporate visits enable students to spend a day in a company aligned with their majors and industries of interest. Students meet alumni and their colleagues, see where they work, learn what they do, and become informed of internship and full time job opportunities. Corporate Visit Day provides students the opportunity to network and connect with professionals. A further benefit is the potential to be recognized for their outstanding accomplishments through their engagement during the visit and via their resumes that are submitted to the employers prior to their arrival. Many of these corporate visits lead to Barney School students landing internships and full time positions. 

Also offered each semester, the Barney School of Business encourages students to practice and enhance their interviewing skills by participating in Mock Interview Week. This event is essential to ensuring students feel prepared when they walk into an interview. In November 2016, 14 organizations participated with Barnum Financial Group and Menefee Associate Consulting LLC, holding the most mock interviews and contributing to the career readiness of Barney School students.
