Employers Recruiting On Campus
- Information Tables: Throughout the year, employers come to campus wanting to meet you and share information about their company, organization and opportunities. The tables are located in the atrium of the Davis Center and offer a chance to informally learn more about job and career options.
- Information Sessions: Employers also offer sessions featuring more in-depth information regarding their company and current openings for employment and internships. These sessions are generally in the afternoon and evening and are open to all students researching opportunities and job requirements. Be curious. Learn about what employers have to offer and what they need from you.
- On-campus Interviews: Graduating soon? Employers are coming to campus to recruit and interview you. By using our Experience database, you can apply to positions directly and be selected for an interview right here on campus. These jobs are located in the area, as well as nationally and internationally.
- Events: Employers come to campus for our Career Fair held each semester and for networking events throughout the year. Attending these events can help you understand how to use your studies and time at UVM effectively so that you are well prepared for the job market. Begin to make contacts at any stage of your educational career and take advantage of employers who are coming to you and are interested in hiring UVM students and graduates.
