⚠ COVID-19 Update - We welcome our employer guests to campus this Fall 2021. Masks are required when indoors for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. More details can be found here

Fall 2021 Updates

On June 15th we transitioned to Handshake for employer posting and events services. On-campus Interviews and Recruiting Events will resume. Exception: Employer Information Tables are still suspended.

Engage with Students

On-Campus

Organizations that can anticipate hiring needs in advance find it convenient to come to campus to conduct multiple initial screening interviews. Generally, employers with internship opportunities recruit sophomores, juniors, and sometimes seniors; organizations with full-time career positions tend to interview seniors and alumni.

Fall Recruiting: Interview dates that run from the end of September through early November.

Spring Recruiting: Interviews take place from the end of February through the end of April.

The University of St. Thomas has an easy, online system to manage our on-campus interviewing program. Through the Handshake system, employers are able to post positions, view applications, communicate selection decisions directly to students, and construct interview schedules. See our Tips to Streamline On-Campus Interviewing for more information.

If interested in scheduling an on-campus interview date(s), please contact Jennifer Rogers at jennifer.rogers@stthomas.edu

Helpful Documents:

The Career Development Center is happy to sponsor eligible employers who wish to tell students about their organization, and their career opportunities.

Who’s Eligible?

  • You have a professional, entry-level position(s) requiring/preferring a minimum of a bachelor’s degree education.
  • You have a pre-professional internship paying an hourly wage.
  • This is ideal for organizations that have multiple opportunities across multiple job functions, or for positions where candidate eligibility spreads across many academic program areas.

A space on the St. Paul Campus is reserved for you, and marketing to students is provided.  Events are booked for dates between September – November and February – April.  We strongly encourage employers to provide some refreshments through university Catering.

To request an Information Session date:

Let employer relations staff know if you are interested in being a guest speaker at a student club meeting and we’ll pass the message along.

Email Employer Engagement staff if you would like to set a date and block of time to be available to chat with students informally about your organization, your internships and career opportunities.  Students should be asking the questions!

Off-Campus

The best way for students to decide if they are genuinely interested in specific careers is to experience them.  The first step can be through an observation experience.  Please inform employer relations staff if you have staff willing to allow a student to shadow them for portions of days or multiple days.

Students love to see what life can be like after they graduate – so consider offering a tour and program at your organization.  Consider some or all of these activities:

  • Describe your internship and career opportunities, hiring timelines and application process
  • Have a small panel of recent college grads describe their role and what it’s like to work there
  • Provide a short tour of typical work spaces and extras
  • Have students complete a short activity or project for you

Invite specific St. Thomas student clubs/organizations or post as a career Event for all students.
