Career Development offers a variety of opportunities for employers to connect with Xavier students. Employers who layer their connections and develop a campus presence tend to draw a number of interested and informed applicants for their internships and full time positions.
CAMPUS RECRUITING OPTIONS
- Host Information Sessions: Offer a virtual and on-campus information session during peak recruiting, prior to career fairs, and before conducting on-campus interviews to make interested candidates aware of your anticipated openings.
- Conduct On-Campus Interviews: The Career Development Office features a lovely interview suite, providing a convenient space for employers to interview candidates for internships and jobs right on campus. Xavier students like this option too as it allows them to interview between classes. The resources below will guide you on how to coordinate your interview schedule via Handshake and reserve space within the Career Development Office interview suite.
- Attend a Career Fair: Recruit for your available internships and full-time positions at an in-person or virtual career fair.
- Are virtual career fairs new for your organization? The following article will give you full details about the Handshake virtual fair experience: Virtual Fairs in Handshake: A Guide for Employers
- Participate in Resume Reviews & Mock Interviews: Provide students resume feedback or conduct mock interviews to provide authentic practice to those seeking internships and jobs. Reach out to Employer Relations to get connected with our next event.
- Offer Workshop Presentations: Presenting on a career development topic can help students to gain an employer's perspective in their job/internship search while you help potential candidates learn more about your organization and its opportunities. Reach out to Employer Relations to get involved in a future presentation.
- Serve on Panel Presentations: Offer your perspective and advice on a career development topic to help students better prepare themselves for their futures. Reach out to Employer Relations to get involved in a future employer panel.
