Employers - Connect with Students

There are a variety of opportunities for employers to connect and engage with students on campus including:

  • On-Campus Recruitment
  • Career Fairs
  • Information Sessions
  • Employer Panels
  • Serving on an Advisory Council

In an effort to ensure that students’ best interests and rights are protected, rules and procedures have been established which define the parameters within which business representatives can interact with students when seeking to fill jobs or internship positions.
