UNCG Students

 

We offer small and large organizations alike the opportunity to recruit talented and diverse interns, part-time, and full-time employees. We do this by providing:

arrowAccess to a Highly Prepared Talent Pool

We offer recruiters and hiring managers access to highly qualified prospective employees that include both current students and alumni. Post a job or internship conveniently online through our recruitment portal Handshake.

arrowNetworking and Hiring Events that Increase Reach

The Career Services Center offers a wide range of on-campus activities and events to help you connect directly to our students.

Career Fairs
UNCG’s CSC holds a variety of Career Fairs each academic year. For more information on each recruiting event, please review the Attend Events page.

Tabling
A recruiting table allows employers to interact with students in an informal manner to search for candidates and/or promote their organization. Employers looking to capture a general audience of all student years and majors are welcome to table in the Elliott University Center up to 3 times per semester for a fee of $25 per session. Tables are reserved on a first-come first-served basis Monday through Friday between the hours of 11am-2pm when classes are in session. Submit your request to table in Handshake.

Information Sessions
Information sessions give employers the opportunity to promote their organization and provide current job or internship opportunities to students in an interactive setting. Information sessions are typically 60-minute engagements and consist of a presentation detailing company information (structure, culture, values, etc.), employment opportunities, and the hiring process for such opportunities, ending with a Q&A and an opportunity for students/alumni to network with interviewers.

Industry/Job Function Panels and Networking Events
Industry panels are a way to connect with students who are interested in a specific field. Panels provide an opportunity for students to ask questions and learn about an industry from the employer’s perspective and experience. The CSC would be happy to discuss having your organization be a part of one of our existing events where there is a strong alignment between your organization’s industry or function and the event’s theme.

Industry-Based Site Visits (Treks)
Industry Treks incorporate one or multiple visits to companies/organizations of a common industry. These Treks educate students on the industry itself and expose students to the diverse functions and job opportunities within a particular industry.

On-Campus Interviewing (OCI)
An effective way to interview highly talented UNCG students is to participate in OCI. This allows employers to maximize interviewing efforts while accommodating the busy academic schedules of students. Employers that interview on campus create connections with students/alumni and increase their visibility on campus. For details on OCI, please review the Employer Recruitment Guide on our website. OCI requests must be submitted through Handshake.

arrowSponsorship that Strengthens Your Brand

UNCG offers a variety of opportunities to engage with Spartan talent outside of traditional recruiting events. You can raise awareness of your organization among our student body by creating a strong presence on campus. Sponsoring key career development activities such as our annual Etiquette Dinner or Peer Career Ambassadors offer an immediate return on your investment.

Interested in something innovative? Reach out to the Employer Relations team and let us support you in designing a custom networking event.

“Employers should know that UNCG students are unique because of the culture of care we are immersed in at this university. We put so much emphasis on community at this institution, and I believe many of our students implement this in their professional as well as service-learning endeavors.”
