Nope, you are not obligated to accept an internship or job offer. However, given the demand for any given cycle, we do hope that you will only opt-in for roles if you have a sincere interest in working with the sponsoring company.
Eligibility for our programs depends on the talent needs of our Company Partners for each recruiting cycle. Generally Company Partners are looking for first, second and third-year undergraduates, with a special emphasis on individuals of diverse backgrounds (e.g. women, underrepresented minorities, veterans, LGBTQ, first-generation). However, we ensure inclusiveness in everything we do and encourage any motivated candidate to join.
We welcome new members to ModernGuild around the year. Be mindful of any upcoming Virtual Career Fair dates, as those are associated with our opt-in drives. Our opt-ins are the only place you are able to express interest in specific opportunities, unless otherwise communicated from the MG Team.
Yes. Each Company Partner has its own requirements, which are always subject to change, but several of our partners have some opportunities for international students. We have successfully worked with dozens of international students in the past.
We recognize that many underclassmen don't yet have any solid experience or grounding in our current industry offerings (consulting and finance). All we expect is that, if you complete an industry profile, you have a genuine curiosity about these industries and are excited about the possibility of expanding your horizons. We strongly believe that all of our graduates emerge from our training programs feeling far more confident in their career directions.
Absolutely. While completing your profile, you will be asked to rank all of our company partners by preference. You will also have the opportunity to express interest in specific opportunities and companies in our candidate opt-ins. If more than 1 company expresses interest in you, we will reference your ranking and, where applicable, give you the option of choosing. It's important to us that you're matched with a company that excites you.
Unfortunately, given that our company partners have the final say in hiring decisions, we cannot guarantee a job offer. However, our partner companies recruit heavily from our program participants and all graduates are guaranteed an interview. To date, we've been able to place 86% of ModernGuild graduates within 3 months of program completion.
