Campus Recruiting

Reach out to our Saint Mary’s University students for all your recruitment needs!‌

Employer Information Session

Hosting an Information Session is an excellent opportunity for interested students and/or alumni to learn about employment opportunities that may become available within your organization. Employers usually recruit for full time, internships and new graduate positions. Information sessions are typically held in the early evening, 1-2 hours in length including a presentation followed by a Q&A. Organizations are given a classroom  equipped with audio visual equipment and a  username/password will be provided for your log-in. Employers are also welcome to bring their own equipment, if they prefer.

Sometimes employers like to schedule these events to coincide with career fairs, advertised position and deadlines. Some companies may offer handouts, resume reviews and speak with students on a one-on-one basis.

Campus availability is limited. Please provide us with one to two weeks' notice allowing us time to schedule your location and promote your sessions to our students.
