|*2010 data incomplete; recruiting season in progress|
Last year, CJ published its first analysis of corporate recruiting at Harvard's Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology on September 12, 2009. The dropoff between 2008 and 2009 was significant (going from 21 to 2009's final total of 12 companies that visited and interviewed.)
One year later, recruiting is still down from 2008. It should be noted that the 2010 season* has not ended, so there is a possibility that more companies will visit; in 2009, 4 more companies were added to Harvard's schedule after the post was made.
Best of luck to all the candidates involved; here's hoping there's a lot more chances for interviews.
*For the purposes of this post, it is assumed that ConocoPhillips and Merck is rescheduling and interviewing candidates; it is also assumed that AZ will not be interviewing, but only presenting.
