Recruitment methods

Employers use a variety of on- and off-campus recruitment methods to find candidates for internships and employment. Common on-campus recruitment methods occur through attending career fairs, hosting information sessions, sponsoring career treks and participating in employer-focused events like networking & alumni panels and coffee & career chats. Off-campus recruitment requires students to leave campus or get online to connect with employers. This can generally occur through employers hosting off-campus open houses, virtual events, meet-ups, or doing an open call for applications online.
