The Citadel Spring 2022 Career & Internship Fair - Wednesday, February 23, 2022. Registration opens soon!
Career planning is an integral part of student life at The Citadel. We recommend working with The Career Center to develop effective recruiting strategies:
START with Handshake, which allows you to electronically share jobs, internships, and register for 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! You will want to send people to campus who enjoy working wtih and educating young people (recruiters who sit behind a table and do not engage typically have poor results).
Classroom Visits & Guest Speakers
Classroom speakers are not specifically for the purpose of recruiting, but can have that impact. If you have content knowledge of a professional area we will be happy to introduce you to faculty. Class visits are at the discretion of the faculty. 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.
Recruiting Wednesdays/ Information Sessions / YouTube Recruiting
Contact email@example.com to see if an information session or an online recruiting session is right for you. We will also host online recruiting sessions through Zoom, which we record and share on our YouTube Channel (see samples here)
