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:  

  • Build your brand on campus - It is difficult to attract talent if students have not heard of you.
  • Get involved - Building relationships with faculty, staff and students impacts recruiting outcomes.
  • Leverage your Citadel alumni - They are fantastic sources for referrals. Use the Linkedin Alumni Tool.
  • Engage early and often - Start early in the academic year. 
  • Send the right people - Engage! Send people to campus who enjoy talking to and connecting with students.  
  • Communicate- Students want to know what they can expect, tell them. 

Posting Jobs and Internships

START with Handshake, which allows you to electronically share jobs, internships, and register for career fairs.

  1. Look for "No account? Sign up here" 
  2. Select “Employer” / Click "Sign Up"    
  3. Posting Tip - Salary isn't required, but including a competitive range increases applicants!
  4. Review Our Posting Policies. Opportunities typically declined are:    
  • Multi-Level Marketing - Also known as pyramid selling, and referral marketing. 
  • Household Positions - Personal care, nannies, tutors, yard care do not meet our guidelines, but can be emailed to us. 
  • Staffing Agencies - Positions not posted by the "employer" will be declined. 
  • Positions which require students use their personal networks: during the interview process to generate leads.

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! 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 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
