Resume collections

We will post your position on Handshake and promote it to targeted students. After an agreed upon deadline, we will compile and send you resumes for your review. We can then discuss next steps with respect to scheduling interviews.  


Partnership programs

Sponsoring events and student resources are an effective way to increase employer visibility and student interest. Sponsorships support career-focused student programs, the development of internship opportunities, and student‐employer networking events.


Host a site visit

You choose the day and time and we will bring the students to you. Site visits usually last one to three hours and includes an overview of the organization and career opportunities, a tour of the facility, and an opportunity to network with current employees.
