  • GET INVOLVED Building relationships with faculty, staff and students impacts recruiting outcomes.
  • LEVERAGE YOUR CITADEL ALUMNI - They are fantastic sources for referrals (Linkedin Alumni Tool). 
  • ENGAGE EARLY & OFTEN - Start early in the academic year. 
  • SEND THE RIGHT PEOPLE - Enage! Send people to campus who enjoy talking to and connecting with students.  
  • COMMUNICATE - Students want to know what they can expect, tell them.

ON CAMPUS RECRUITING 

Career Fairs

Career fairs offer students a unique opportunity to connect and learn about you. At The Citadel, all academic years and programs are encouraged to attend. Keep in mind, speaking with a freshman today helps you develop your future pipeline.   

Classroom Visits & Guest Speakers

Classroom speakers are invited to share content knowledge of a particular area and are not indended specifically for recruiting purposes. While they are at the descretion of the faulty, we will be happy to make recommendations. You may also contact the departments directly. Faculty typically develop syllabi a semester in advance. It is recommended you reach out in advance to increase success. 

Information Sessions

The Citadel's Cadet 24/7 Training Schedule makes attendance at information sessions challenging. The Career Center prefers up to 2 weeks advance notice to advertise Information Sessions, which are done through Handshake. Contact careercenter@citadel.edu for more information. Information sessions are not scheduled on Fridays due to our parade schedule. 

Leadership Day 411

Our Annual Leadership Day is an opportunity for our students to have a positive impact on our local community.  Underclassmen volunteer at Title I schools and local non-profit organizations. Juniors participate in ethics seminars, and seniors attend professional development “lunch and learns” at organizations like: Boeing, Blackbaud, NIWIC, MUSC, Water Missions, FBI, and a large array of small to mid-size entrepreneurs, attorneys, accountanting firms, and cybersecurity companies. If interested in hosting students, email rtill@citadel.edu for next steps. 

Service Learning 

Give Pulse - Our service learning platform is for marketing, registration and tracking of service learning iniatitives. This resource can connect employers to cadet-led service opportunities (or corporate team building service opportunities) that do not fall on Leadership Day.  Info linked here.
