Developed by two Wharton professors, Candidate Match uses a diagnostic tool combined with a machine-learning algorithm to identify top candidates for job openings based on your preferences. Candidates are undergraduate seniors from the College of Arts & Sciences, School of Engineering & Applied Science, and the Wharton School.

Since the tool uses data-driven methods to identify candidates, Candidate Match is a useful complement to your existing recruiting strategies.

Post a Job

Post your jobs, internships, and other opportunities for free in Handshake. Reach students and alumni from Penn, as well as hundreds of other schools in the Handshake network with a single posting.

Recruit Wharton MBA students and alumni for your openings through CareerPath – Wharton’s free, online recruiting system, which contains a convenient job posting platform.

Set Up Personalized Sessions

Set up large info sessions, coffee chats, and interviews directly with our students through the career services teams.

Host a Student Analytics Project

Gain visibility to highly qualified candidates by hosting a student data project. Wharton Customer Analytics works directly with the data analytics clubs to recruit students for Analytics Accelerator projects or Datathons, which are sponsored by WCA Corporate Partners. Become a Corporate Partner and work closely with Wharton faculty, WCA leadership, and top student talent to examine a pressing business need.
