Firsthand (formerly Vault) Career Guides

Firsthand's (formerly Vault) award-winning career guides include interview strategies, job-search tips, and full-length profiles of leading companies. Firsthand is limited to Current Ross Students and Ross Alumni only. Guides are FREE to download. An iMpact login is required.

If this is your first time accessing Firsthand, you will be prompted to create an account before you can view Firsthand content.  Currently we recommend that you DO NOT USE your address, instead use another email address. This is due to reported problems with receiving Vault emails at those addresses.

Links to requested guides will be sent to you at your registered email address. The link is good for two downloads in a 48 hour period, after which time you will need to request the guide again.  Vault guides are in PDF format.
