The Career Center is an integral part of student life. We will support you through the recruiting process to help you more effectively #hireCitadel! Posting jobs, sharing internships and attending career fairs are all a great start to the process. Engaging in other campus initiatives also helps students recognize your organization as an option for their future. Develop an effective recruiting strategy and research some other areas of opportunity:
SET UP YOUR HANDSHAKE ACCOUNT! Handshake helps us help you. This tool allows you to post jobs and internships and gives you access to campus recruiting events like career fairs and information sessions. To set up an account:
POSTING TIP - Salaries are not required, but including one in a competitive range increases applicants.

EMAIL LEADS - Job and internship leads shared through email are difficult to share effectively, despite our best efforts. Recruiting through Handshake gives us all more control to target and share with the appropriate parties. However, if you are not the hiring agent, we do accept email leads sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We update our lead sheet and share during individual appointments as we are able.
We offer many special events throughout the academic year which are intended to provide a personal touch for employers and students. Career fairs offer students a unique opportunity to get first-hand knowledge of employment trends and specific job openings. Students of all academic levels are invited and encouraged to attend our events. We encourage and invite employers to campus who are willing to engage with all level and years.
Registration is by invitation only.
Classroom Visits & Guest Speakers
Classroom speakers are scheduled by faculty members. The Career Center will be happy to make recommendations, but you may contact the departments directly. Classroom speakers are typically chosen for content knowledge of a particular area or profession, not for recruiting purposes. Faculty typically develop syllabi a semester in advance. It is recommended you reach out several weeks to several months in advance if you are interested in making this work successfully.
Mock Interview Day - Tuesday, October 29, 2019 from 2:00 - 5:00. This event allows employers to provide students with mock interview experience. If you are interested in participating, reach out to Tyler Till, Employer Relations Manager.
The Citadel's Cadet 24/7 Training Schedule makes information sessions challenging. Recruiters who have not taken time to market on campus may find the student turnout small. The Career Center requires up to 2 weeks advance notice to advertise Information Sessions, which are done through Handshake. Contact email@example.com for more information. Information sessions are not scheduled on Fridays due to our parade schedule.
