WhoSE fault is this?

Some update about the job search.

We had a discussion yesterday in a House Dinner. As you know there are several company presentations during the week, more than one a day probably. Company presentations are a good tool to show your interest and have serious talks with alumni.
Now the issue: on a particular day, one company presentation had flown 5 representatives, and only 8 MBAs showed up, including 3 just for the sake of fundraising for National Week.
Some people claimed that if the company was offering better packages, students would show up.
Some said that the company did not prepare seriously the event, with not enough publicity, and last minute advertisement.
Some said that it's pretty tough in the 10 month-programme to get P2s interested in job search, and P4s have so many options.
It's definitely not arrogance...

Another information, McKinsey gives a chance of first interview to all grads. I did not apply, and they called back enquiring on the reasons and whether I was ready to give it a shot...

I thought about it for 2 minutes... And that is not arrogance, just drive.
