Career Fairs

Career Services coordinates career fairs twice per calendar year. These are great opportunities for employers to meet and hire degree-seeking students. Some events highlight particular areas of study while other fairs are gauged to all majors. Fairs are marketed campus-wide and are often also open to the community.

Internships/Externships

An employer can create internship positions that allow students to gain essential hands-on training while earning credit in their degree program. This is an effective recruitment tool to train and retain great employees. Internships are a requirement in several Stratford programs. 

Employer Spotlights

Set up a display at your local campus and recruit potential employees. Through on-campus recruiting, you are able to informally share information about your company, opportunities, and your application process. Bring application materials and collateral to share with our student job-seekers, or set up an Employer Spotlight workshop and present to students in a group-setting.

Guest Speaking

Career Services is always seeking speakers to present to students on a variety of topics, ranging from job search skills and professionalism to subject-specific workshops. If you have a presentation our students need to hear, we’d love to partner with you.

Advisory Board

We highly value and often act on direct feedback from employers and alumni who have interacted with staff and students in order to continuously improve and innovate the recruiting resources we offer. We appreciate our Board members’ support in offering their valuable time and service to Stratford University.
