Connecting with faculty is one of the most effective ways to identify and recruit the right talent for your organization. We can schedule a faculty visit at your office or facility, as well as organize Lunch-and-Learns while you are on campus to discuss curriculum and research collaboration.
Connect with the student clubs and organizations that are interested in your fields. Arrange to be a guest speaker or to video conference with the group for a targeted recruitment of the most focused developing professionals. Visit Student Organizations Services.
Reserve an Information Table
Want to reach students from a broad spectrum of majors? Our information tables are stationed in the foyer of the Mountainlair, which thousands of faculty, staff, and students move through in a single academic week making this an excellent place to market your company’s opportunities.
Classroom Presentations and Technical Talks
Is your company on the cutting edge of research? Are you setting industry standards that our students should know before they enter the workforce? Volunteer to give a classroom lecture and share your knowledge with the next generation of employees and leaders.
Tell students directly what they can do to make themselves good candidates for your
company. Information Sessions are an opportunity to highlight your organization
prior to the actual on-campus interview, while providing details about the positions
for which you are recruiting.
The Daily Athenaeum, WVU’s official student newspaper, is an affordable choice
for advertising upcoming opportunities with your company. This newspaper is read
by thousands of students on a daily basis during the regular school year, making
it by far the most popular news source at WVU.
