How On-Campus Recruiting Works in Handshake

When you apply for an opportunity that involves an on-campus interview you will be notified through Handshake when the employer makes their selections (e.g. primary, alternate, declined).

If selected as a primary or alternate candidate, you will have an opportunity to sign up for an interview slot at the designated time mentioned in the notification.  After you apply, a timeline is available in the posting’s left margin.  All interview slots are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  You will not be able to schedule an interview until you have completed the Student Code of Conduct Survey.

The Code of Conduct in Handshake

The Student Code of Conduct survey establishes the guidelines by which you may access and apply to opportunities posted in Handshake.  In order to schedule an on-campus interview, you are required to complete the Student Code of Conduct.  Please complete this survey as soon as possible, so that you are not delayed or blocked from scheduling an interview.  To take the short survey, go to Handshake and after logging in, click Career Center -> Surveys.

Alumni Profile: Jack Kramer ’11

JACK KRAMER ’11 is Co-CEO, MarketSnacks and an MBA/MPP Candidate at the University of Michigan.  At Middlebury he majored in Economics and German.

Jack grew up in Vermont dreaming about going to Midd and playing football on Youngman Field. He did just that. In the classroom, Jack majored in both economics and German. He recommends to students – particularly economic majors – that you should hone in on a unique sector of finance or business that interests you most. For him it was German, and he credits luck that a German bank and his eventual employer, Commerzbank, came to recruit at Middlebury. He worked for 5-years as a relationship manager at the bank, helping German automotive clients expand in the US.

Jack also co-founded MarketSnacks, a daily email newsletter that he and his partner (his freshman year roommate) operate as a part-time endeavor. With his “side-hustle,” he sought to change financial news for his generation. The banker-turned-entrepreneur scaled his startup and took on partners like Fidelity and made appearances on CBS, Cheddar, and Nasdaq. Jack’s email newsletter has become the voice of and for millennials on Wall Street.

Being a student-athlete at Middlebury taught Jack how to handle a heavy workload through solid work ethic and being highly organized. His experiences catapulted him to the University of Michigan, where he’s pursuing a dual master’s degree in business and public policy. As industries become more and more tech-oriented, Jack believes public policy and regulation will become increasingly important to business. Thus, he’s gaining expertise in the intersection of business and government.
