Other Unique Recruiting Events
More and more of our partners are looking beyond Info Sessions to identify new and exciting ways to engage students. Some of the creative and successful events have included "Lunch on Us", "Coffee & Bagels", "Cupcakes on Us", and "Doughnut Exam Break" events! These usually involve a table in our atrium or in the EB2 breezeway staffed with your recruiters.
Resources & Other Opportunities
Graduate Career Services Director & Suite
Leslie Rand-Pickett is our Director of Graduate Career Services. The CSC Career Services Suite recently opened in EB2 on Centennial Campus and contains two high-tech interview rooms. ePartners have priority. Contant Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule use of the interview room.
Student Email & Social Media Blasts
Weekly email blasts are sent to all CSC students listing details about all ePartner & Super ePartner events and activities on a rolling two week view. Social media blasts serve as "day of" reminders.
A benefit available to all Super ePartners is a 'profile page' on our ePartners Web Site – a special dedicated page that sits between our site and yours detailing your company’s partnership, recruiting interests, and special content, messages, and links. More info can be found here.
ePack Job Posting & Resume Database
All ePartner postings on our jobs board are color-coded and placed at the top of the page by default. (See current listings.) The board regularly features 500+ job postings. ePartners may request a customized Resume Book with CSC students who meet your specifed selection criteria. Request access to your customized book through Leslie Rand-Pickett (email@example.com.) For anyone who might not have an ePack account, contact Leslie or contact our CDC prime, Cara Doyle (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly and she will ensure that you are set-up properly.
