HAPPY 2022! LET’S GET READY FOR SPRING RECRUITING!

New year, new events, and new opportunities! We have a full calendar of career-related events for you this spring semester. Scroll down to learn more about them!

 ARE YOU READY FOR SPRING 2022 RECRUITING?

Spring 2022 recruiting will continue to be a hybrid version—some events are in-person, others are virtual/online (make sure you read the fine print and event details to figure out which is which)! Make sure your profile and resume on Handshake are updated to start applying to opportunities and sign-up for events! Don’t forget to submit your resume on Handshake to be included in resume books sent to employers in search of hiring talent. Once you’ve accepted an offer, don’t forget to withdraw your application so you will no longer be included. Resume books can be found by clicking HERE. We have YouTube videos also available if you want to know how to best utilize Handshake for recruiting!

We’re on social media! Hear from us and stay in touch with our Office and peer coaches for helpful recruiting tips, last-minute career-related events and opportunities, and employer features!
