McDavid: Consider Your Options
Corporate recruiting exemplifies Dartmouth’s pre-professional, business minded culture. A career in the corporate world often seems the default expectation for a Dartmouth student, which can be frustrating to those who have no interest in the participating industries. The recruiting process provides an opportunity for many Dartmouth students to connect directly with potential employers — something that does not happen with other career paths, at least not to the same degree. Its extensive influence and culture can quickly become exasperating, and we must remember it isn’t the only option on campus.
