Job/Internship Postings and Resume Books
Employers can post and manage their own FT and internship opportunities for free by registering with eRecruiting. This online database serves as the main avenue in which we post opportunities and is accessible to both our current students and alumni. Employers with eRecruiting accounts also have free access to electronic Resume Books containing the resumes of students and alumni. To access the site, please click here.
For additional information on how to proceed with posting opportunities, review our Employer eRecruiting Quick Start Guide and Xavier's Employment Opportunity Posting Guidelines for further instructions.
Many employers are turning to internship programs as a way to fill the recruiting pipeline with potential full-time talent. In these programs, the employer is able to free up permanent staff for special projects, build company visibility at Xavier University, gain fresh ideas from new talent, and become actively involved in educating today's students and tomorrows workers. For more information on our Internship Program, click here.
Xavier University offers a number of opportunities throughout the year for employers to connect with students and alumni. Our two largest events are our University-wide Fall Career Fair (typically in September) and our Spring Career Fair (typically in February). For more information about upcoming Fairs, click here.
Meet the Firm Events
Meet the Firm events are a great opportunity to share details about your organization and upcoming career opportunities to students and alumni. These events are often hosted through our academic departments and reach students through a discipline-specific Meet the Firms event that brings together multiple organizations seeking similar majors. For example, the Accounting Meet the Firms event typically takes place in early September.
Organizations can also choose to host their own event, highlighting your company specifically. We can partner with you to host day or evening sessions as an opportunity to connect with Xavier talent. For more information on Meet the Firms events, please contact either Laura Frazier (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cheryl Wilson (email@example.com).
