Connect with our students 

In-person and virtual events are a great way for any employer to connect with students and build their brand.  Better than a job posting or a company website, employers can share in-depth information about what makes their company 'The One', address student questions, and instill excitement about your company.

Throughout the year, employers can connect with students in various events as listed below.  

  • Attend A Career Fair

    Each fall and spring semester, our office hosts a university-wide career fair which is open to all majors, class levels, and degree levels.  Typically, our fairs attract 80+ employers and approximately 400+ students and alumni.  For more insight on student and employer particiaption at our fairs, please review this information.

  • Host An Event

    Put your company in the spotlight by hosting your own individual event.  While there are numerous events that you can host, consider what would work best for your company and for the students you are targeting.  We encourage employers to go beyond what is on their website to make their event a success for both student and employer!  While several opportunities are listed below, we are always willing to assist employers create their own signature event.

    -Lunch & Learn
    Simulations or Hack-a-Thons
    Career/Professional Development Workshops

    Allowing students to visit your company can be a great opportunity for students to see your company in action as well as visualize themselves in your workplace.

  • Virtual Events

    Don't limit your student engagement because of challenges with coming to campus or having students visit you.  Consider hosting virtual events!

  • CUA Alumni-Employer Programming

    Utilzing CUA alumni or current students at your company to further promote your company is a valuable resource.  Students tend to feel more comfortable interacting and they are able to make an easier connection with those who have gone before them.
