Student Newsletter – RECRUITING CONTINUES

September 28, 2021

Don’t forget the Kelley Virtual Employer Networking Night (ENN) TONIGHT – Sept. 28 and the last one for fall semester on Oct. 12.

Some of you have already had interviews with employers while others of you are starting to receive invitations to interview with companies which will continue through the semester.

How can I put my best foot forward when interacting with recruiters at an event or in an interview?

INTERVIEW PREPARATION TIPS

If you’ve got an interview coming up, use some of these resources available to help you prepare!

2 UPCOMING DIVERSITY VIRTUAL CAREER FAIRS (via HANDSHAKE)

(1)  IU DIVERSITY VIRTUAL CAREER & INTERNSHIP FAIR FALL 2021

This virtual event, taking place this week on Thursday, Sept. 30, is an opportunity for students of all majors to connect one-on-one and in group settings with employers and explore internships and full-time employment with local, state, and national recruiters from academic, government, business, and non-profit sectors. The fair is open to all Indiana University students.

(2)  HIRE BIG 10+ & MWACE DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION VIRTUAL CAREER FAIR

Everyone is welcome at this recruiting event on Tuesday, Oct. 5.  Employers will promote their open positions while showcasing their commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion through hiring practices, workplace culture, and diversity-focused initiatives and programs. Students can have real conversations about DEI and learn more about what DEI means to potential employers.

 IMPORTANT CAREER FAIR & ENN REMINDERS:

  • Participation is a 2-step process: (1) Register on Handshake for each event AND (2) Sign up for group sessions and 1:1 sessions with your firms of interest before they fill up. Solely registering does NOT get you in front of employers!
  • To sign up for Group or 1:1 sessions, your profile privacy must be set to “Community”.
  • You can check back 48 hours prior to the event for additional 1:1 sessions that have opened.
  • Virtual does not mean optional! Several employers have shared that some students who have scheduled time with them have been no-shows. Ghosting an employer does not bode well for future employment opportunities. If you schedule a time to meet with an employer, SHOW UP and log in on time! The employers know who is on their schedule and will document and remember a no show.
  • Technical difficulty or day-of-event questions? We will be available by clicking “Join Virtual Help Room” in Handshake during the event.

 CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER

If you are actively looking for an internship or full-time job, we recommend that you check your SPAM and Junk Email folders on a regular basis. For some upcoming virtual company events, session links are being sent to students who register. So, if you are waiting for correspondence from companies and haven’t seen anything in your Inbox, check to see if it has landed in the Junk folder.

 CAN EMPLOYERS FIND YOU IN OUR RESUME BOOKS?

Uploading your resume to Handshake does not automatically include you in the resume books – you have to follow these steps.  A resume book is a digital compilation of students’ resumes, by major and graduation year, that the UCS makes available for hiring employers at their request. This helps us promote you to companies! Employers request resumes of students who are in the job market, so maximize your visibility to companies and upload your resume today!

 ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A GLOBAL CAREER?

Did you know? As an IU Kelley student, you not only have access to our Kelley Undergraduate Career Services, but to various global career/job search resources and events (all for FREE!)? IU Career Services Council also has a dedicated group (International Students Careers Committee) committed to support both international students and domestic students interested in global opportunities. To help the Committee better serve YOU in your international career search and endeavors, please fill out this short survey!

 IU MAURER DIRECT ADMIT APPLICATIONS – STILL OPEN FOR FALL 2022

Good news for IUB students who may be interested in attending law school. Indiana University Maurer School of Law, one of the nation’s strongest programs, has established a Direct Admit Program that allows high-achieving Indiana University-Bloomington students who have not taken an LSAT and who will receive their undergraduate degree between December 2021 and August 2022 to apply to the Law School without taking the LSAT.
