  Welcome to the Berkeley Haas Career Services.

You have joined a school with strong defining principles, focused on helping you achieve academic and career success.  Haas and the Cal Career Center are your partners in all phases of your career development while you are at Haas.

We divide this partnership into four key pillars:

  1. Callisto: Your gateway to jobs, program events and much, much more
  2. Counseling: your personalized job/internship-search and professional development partner
  3. OCR: On-Campus Recruiting – motivated employers meeting motivated applicants
  4. Resources: Tools and people  - impress by being well-prepared and knowledgeable

Callisto: Your Gateway to Jobs, Program Events and Much, Much More

Callisto brings you the latest updates to keep you on task and in the know.  Not all employers hire through OCR; many post positions are advertised  just on Callisto.  It is important to monitor Callisto to ensure you do not miss these opportunities.
On Callisto you can:

  • Set up search agents to inform you when relevant positions are posted
  • Sign up for easy, one-stop access to almost all online Career Center services and event sign ups
  • Subscribe to receive regular CareerMail emails

Throughout the year the Career Center holds a variety of career fairs.  These attract a diverse and wide range of employers, yet not all of them are part of OCR.  Companies often give Information Sessions as well – an opportunity to network with company representatives and learn first-hand about their career options.  Watch Callisto and CareerMails for details.

Counseling: Your Personalized Job-search Partner

The business counseling team of David Woodward and Chris Gavin is dedicated to partnering with you throughout your job or internship search while you are at Haas.
You can:

  • Book 45-minute 1-on-1 counseling sessions at the Cal Career Center
  • Sign-up for mini drop-in sessions at Haas
  • Attend “career lounges” at Haas ranging from informal drop-in discussion groups, through classes on specific topics, to employer or industry presentations

Whatever stage you’ve reached in your job search – exploration, application, interview, offer – or whatever topic you wish to discuss– resume, cover letter, informational interviews, job-search etiquette – we are here to help you developed life-time career development skills

OCR: On-Campus Recruiting

OCR provides you the opportunity to interview with 350+ employers who visit the Career Center during the Fall and Spring semesters. 
Through OCR you can:

  • Find paid summer internships
  • Discover regular full-time employment
  • Find OCR listings in Callisto under the "Jobs, Internships & OCR Interviews" tab beginning in late August

Interviews occur from late September through mid-November for the Fall semester and late January through mid-April for the Spring semester. Resume submission deadlines vary, so check Callisto often and soon!

Resources: Tools and people

Studying at Haas gives you a great advantage.  In addition to employers wanting to hire you, many employers and alumni want to share their experience and their insights with you.
For example you have access to:

  • Panels of Industry and functional experts
  • Workshops for developing case interview skills
  • Mock interviews to do develop behavioral interview skills
  • Networking events
  • Workshops on specific career-related topics such as networking, negotiating or making your message stick
  • Employers – post your resume in resume books that employers use to fill positions
  • Research tools - Callisto gives you access to information resources such as Vault employer and industry guides.  The Haas Long Library has helpful and resourceful  librarians and  research tools to help your industry and company exploration.

We look forward to working with you and to celebrating your success.
