Making the Most of Employer On-Campus Recruitment Events

Want to learn about organizations seeking to hire you for full-time opportunities? We have a number of employers visiting our campus over the next several weeks starting February 11 on Tuesdays from 1:00 to 1:50 PM.

Take advantage of these events to connect with representatives, gain insight into what they’re looking for in candidates, and enhance your chances of landing a job! Below is the schedule for February. Alumni are also welcome.

See a full list of confirmed employers here.

Here are a few ways to make the most of the events and stand out from the crowd:

    • Research the organization beforehand to get a sense of their services, impact, and the communities they serve
    • Prepare an elevator pitch and ensure that you arrive on time to make a good first impression
    • Ask thoughtful questions that demonstrate your knowledge, interest, and curiosity to learn more about their organization, values, and culture
    • Inquire about opportunities for growth, training, and professional development, as well as transferable skills they value, especially if you are a career changer or don’t yet meet certain requirements
    • Collect business cards, so you can follow up to personally thank them (BONUS: Reference something you learned from the session to make yourself even more memorable!)
