Brand recognition is very important when attracting talented candidates. You can increase the visibility of your organization by participating in a number of ways. Some events and opportunities focus on certain degree programs or student populations. To learn more about these programs, contact Dan Wolfe, employer relations manager to discuss how your organization can establish a strong campus presence by email or by telephoning 716-645-3232.
Interview candidates for full-time or part-time opportunities, internships or leadership conferences using our CRC interview rooms located in the School of Management. To schedule on-campus interviews you can request an on-campus schedule through BizLink or contact the recruitment coordinator at 716-645-3232. See our recruitment calendar for our recommended timeline. Timing: fall (October to November) and spring (late February to April)
If your goal is to encourage as many students as possible to consider a career with your firm, your best option is to conduct a company information session, career-related workshop, or on-campus visit early in the semester, in advance of any scheduled interviews. Attendance at these events is greatest when they are sponsored by one of our many student organizations and clubs.
Alternatively, if you wish to meet students informally and provide them with company information without using valuable interview time, hosting a company information session the evening before your on-campus interview date is best suited to your needs. Although they can be open to all interested students, "evening before" information sessions are typically attended only by those candidates already preselected to interview.
If you would like to schedule a company information session, log in to BizLink. The request may be found under your shortcuts or through Events.
Another way to increase your visibility is at the various job fairs and recruiting events throughout the year. This calendar lists upcoming recruiting and networking events including both on-campus career fairs and off-campus recruiting events. If you would like to participate in an upcoming job fair or recruiting event, please contact the CRC.
Student groups can be a wonderful avenue to connect with students and help spread the word about your company and its opportunities. Below are club lists with student leadership contact information. Timing: fall and spring
