Fall Recruiting is Underway!

The Fall Job & Internship Fair took place on Friday, September 27, 2019, in Chandler Gymnasium. We had 380+ students speak with 57 employers at this high energy event. The industries of these employers include Education, Technology, Nonprofits, Consulting, & more! There were 36 alumni back on campus representing their organizations. What a successful day! Not only did students have a great experience but 93% of the employers said that they would like to participate in next year's Fair!

Keep a close eye on Handshake events as fall recruiting continues through the rest of October and into November!

Job Shadow An Alum During Winter Study!

The EphLink Job Shadow Program provides participants the opportunity to observe target industries through the lens of alums in the field. Ephs may “test” a career while also building industry contacts.
