These events are ideal for recruiting students, prospective graduates, and alumni from diverse academic and employment backgrounds for your full-time degree, part-time, and internship opportunities! 
        • Group Mock Interviews
          • The job interview can be the most anxiety-provoking job search process. To help students better prepare, we seek employers who would like to share their interviewing expertise by facilitating mock interviews with students. Mock interviews will be conducted in a round-table setting with up to six students.
        • Externship Job Shadowing Program
          • The Extern Job Shadowing Program is a unique career exploration program linking students with professionals in the workplace. By hosting students, you play an active role in educating students about your career field and the workplace, including what skills, education, and experience are typically required for such careers. Extern placements last 1/2 a day to a full day.
