Student/Employer Engagement Details     

  • Cost: $100/employer/session 

  • Time: 3pm - 7pm MST  

  • There will be a limit of 25 companies per session.  

  • Any sessions with less than 5 companies registered on August 31 will be cancelled.

Additional Notes to Employers

  1. The system we are using is Symplicity's CSM Virtual Career Fair Module.  The video meetings will be hosted through your own video platform such as Zoom, MS Teams, WebEx, etc.  This will ensure that you can use a platform that is internally approved by your own organization. 

  2. Students register for and will be able to submit resumes that your representatives can view ahead of time or during the event. 

  3. The system allows you to post information and links for the students to view before speaking with your representative.  

  4. If possible, it is recommended that you have multiple representatives working at the event.

  5. More information and step-by-step instructions will be sent out to registered companies well in advance of the event.

  6. Organizations are welcome to participate in multiple sessions if their recruitment and engagement need to cross over multiple disciplines.

Employer Participation Statistics

From September 2018 to September 2019 Business Career Services posted a total of 1,800 job postings for over 600 employers.

Note that the volume of job postings does not necessarily reflect the overall activity associated with recruitment by employers on campus. Many companies are far more active on their own with recruitment activities and do not specifically post their jobs on campus sites, or they provide one job posting which directs candidates to their website where a large volume of jobs exist. Our data does not necessarily reflect all the jobs available to our students, as additional jobs may be listed on company websites exclusively.
