There are multiple ways to get engaged with Susquehanna! Our employer relations team is available to help you discover ways to better connect with our students and promote your organization.
Depending upon the level of involvement you would like to have, consider one of these recruiting strategies.
Collaborate with career center staff to select a date that is convenient and arrange interviews on campus with students that you pre-select.
Not sure if you can make it to campus? By conducting a resume collection, you can gauge the level of interest in an employment opportunity. If you then decide that you'd like to arrange a visit to campus or schedule interviews, we'd be happy to arrange that at your convenience.
Share information about your industry and promote your organization and/or current employment opportunities. Information sessions and tables are a great way to brand your organization on campus even when you might not have immediate hiring need.
Employer in Residence Program
Collaborate with career center staff to meet with students and give non-biased career advice, mock interviews, resume critiques and industry advice. The EIR Program exposes employers to students from all majors and concentrations during the busiest hours in the Career Development Center. This program is a great way to build your brand, develop a relationship with students and establish a presence on campus.
Career Events & Signature Programs
Our students value your professional insight on a variety of topics, so consider attending one or more various career events throughout the academic year.
For more information on how to take advantage of one or more of these opportunities, or to build a program of your own, please contact Keesha Moore, Employer Relations Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We connect students with quality internship experiences and liaise with alumni and employers to establish learning-centered opportunities.
Internship experiences allow students to bridge classroom learning in the professional workplace, explore career goals, gain hands-on experience, and meaningfully contribute to a company or organization of interest. For employers, interns bring valuable insight, energy, and ideas to new and existing projects and operations.
For more information on internships at Susquehanna, including how to begin recruiting a student intern, see our Employer Internship Guide.
Develop a Relationship
Collaborate with our employer relations team so that they can help you determine which method of recruiting would best fit your organization. In addition, get connected to River Hawk Recruiter for up-to-date information on recruiting opportunities.
Enhance Your Strategy
Now that you have decided on which method is convenient for your company, get connected! Attend events and signature programs to establish a presence on campus.
Maintain Your Presence
Students are more likely to be interested in employers who they've heard of and know, so the more students see or hear from your company, the better. Classroom visits, mock interviews and other on-campus events don't always carry the obligation of hiring students.
