Career Services Recruiting Options
Wabash has a history of producing diligent, thoughtful leaders for organizations of all kinds. Organizations are welcome to recruit Wabash students on-site or virtually at no charge and with great flexibility. All graduate and professional schools are welcome to recruit. If you would like information on any of our programs or options, or would like to explore additional recruiting possibilities beyond those listed, contact us at 765-361-6414, firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a customer-service oriented approach to serving you.
Wabash College Career Services uses Handshake as our platform for posting job, internship, fellowship, and graduate school opportunities. Handshake is brand new to the market, and employers can sign up for an account free of charge (wabash.joinhandshake.com).
We actively market all postings to our student and alumni registrants through targeted emails and announcements. We partner with OneWire, Indiana InternNet, Going Global, and Current Jobs For Graduates for additional recruiting resources.
Disclaimer: Wabash reserves the right to exclude recruiting access to organizations. Typical reasons for exclusion include requiring candidates to pay to be hired or offering unpaid internships at for-profit businesses. Such opportunities are assessed on a case by case basis.
We list open positions through our Handshake system on a year-round basis. Students/alumni apply directly to you in the manner you select. We will keep the listing active for the length of time you specify. To list positions, forward a job description with complete contact information and application deadline to Casey Hockersmith
Resume Referral Service
We manage resume referrals to provide you with a more targeted recruiting option, often with very quick deadlines.
- You tell us the specific type of candidate you’re seeking
- We post the position, alert candidates who qualify, gather resumes, and forward them to you in one email batch on your deadline date.
- To set up a Resume Referral, e-mail the appropriate job description(s) to Casey Hockersmith, and indicate the date you’d like resumes.
Live@Wabash – Virtual Recruiting
We provide you the opportunity to connect with students without traveling to campus. We typically utilize Google Hangout or Skype, but can manage other technologies as well. You can schedule an interactive Info Session on your organization, opportunities, etc. at your convenience, and we’ll market the session to students. The best time for such sessions in 7:30pm (Eastern Time) Sundays – Thursdays. We also schedule Skype interviews. Contact Casey Hockersmith to set up a session.
On-Campus Recruiting/Employer Information Sessions
You can schedule recruiting visits and information sessions during our fall and spring semesters to identify qualified candidates. Information sessions are typically scheduled during the campus-wide lunch break (12-1pm) and allow you time to give a brief presentation on your organization and opportunities, as well as time for Q&A. Other formats are also welcome and we encourage you to be as creative as you like when planning your visit to campus. To schedule a session, please contact Casey Hockersmith to discuss possible dates and logistics.
On-Campus Career Event Participation
We sponsor a series of events year-round that include organization representatives as presenters. Participating in events such as networking dinners, mock interviews, and workshops is an excellent way to increasing your organization’s presence on campus and for you to “pre-identifying” quality candidates. For currently available opportunities, contact Casey Hockersmith Event sponsorship is welcomed as well.
Professional Immersion Experiences (PIE)
These experiences can take a variety of forms, but essentially, we bring the students (small groups) to you. We currently offer programs in Indianapolis, Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, and Denver/Boulder, but are open to new location possibilities. For more details, contact Scott Crawford.
Mock Interview Participation
We sponsor a Mock Interview Week to prepare students for success. Organizations conduct the interviews (on-campus, via Skype, or phone) and critique the student’s performance. You choose the block of time you’d like and participating students sign up in advance. This is a great opportunity to identify potential candidates. Contact Casey Hockersmith for details.
Student Group Presentations
Student academic and professional groups are continuously seeking speakers for their meetings and events. These events are often rather informal, and give you the opportunity to develop a working relationship with an involved segment of our student body. Contact Casey Hockersmith to start connecting.
