Undergraduate and Graduate Recruiting Opportunities

 

Employer In Virtual Residence (EIVR)

How it Works

Employers will select a day to participate between October 5 and October 16.

Students will sign up for a 1-1 Zoom meeting with you (and members of your team) and will choose from a menu of topics to discuss. Potential topics include the following.

  • Job/internship opportunities
  • Resume/cover letter feedback
  • Mock job interview (you run the student through a practice interview)
  • Informational interview (the student interviews you about your background, career path and career advice)
  • Networking/LinkedIn/job searching tips
  • Career guidance/industry insight during and after the COVID -19 pandemic
  • Information about your company (growth, jobs, internships, innovations, etc.)

Sessions

  • Sessions will last 20 minutes — and you will know in advance which discussion topics each student has selected.
  • You can also host an optional virtual information session if desired.
  • The Wilson College will maintain the student sign-up list (so you don’t have to).
  • Students will be responsible for scheduling their Zoom call with you, so there will be minimal pre-work for you.

Benefits for Your Organization

  • You will be providing students with the best, most up-to-date insights and advice in a personal (yet virtual) setting.
  • You can identify and develop your talent pipeline for current and future hiring needs.
  • Your company can maintain its branding/visibility on campus (regardless of whether you’re currently recruiting).
  • You can have numerous persons from your organization sign up to participate; they will have their own schedule (or you can do joint Zoom sessions with students if you choose).
  • It’s completely FREE and will only cost you a few hours of time!

Next Steps

  • If you’d like to participate, please use the link below and select a date (and alternate date) between October 5 and October 16.
  • Choose which topics you’re comfortable discussing and sharing with students.
  • You will be kept apprised of your schedule as your selected date approaches and will receive any additional information as needed.
