Instructions & Important Dates

Submit Your List of Employer Contacts to GMAC by January 4, 2023
  • Compile a list of the employer/recruiters who recruit and/or hire your graduate business students.
    • How many names should we submit? Submit as many or as few names as you like. Some schools submit 50 while others submit several thousand.
    • Who should I include in the list? Consider including employer contacts who visit your campus, post jobs on your job boards, meet with your students at recruiting fairs, recruit remotely, make campus visits, host case competitions, etc. You may include employers even if they did not hire any of your graduates this year.
    • How can I ensure a better response rate from my employers? It's important to ensure your contact list is as clean as possible. Check email addresses for accuracy. Be sure each email address corresponds with the individual's name. 
    • Important: Put the name of your university in the name of the file. For example: "University of GMAC, Corporate Recruiter List 2023." The example below illustrates how to format your list.

      CRS Employer Roster
  • January 4, 2023: Employer contact lists are due to GMAC.

  • Heads-up email: We have found that when employers receive a heads-up letter from you, explaining the purpose and importance of this study, they are much more likely to respond.
    • We recommend you send the heads-up email to your employers between January 3–9. GMAC will provide suggested language for you to use. You are free to modify it.
