Career Opportunity Listing
Recruiters may link directly to our online resume and recruiting system by clicking on this link:
http://ku-csm.symplicity.com/employers. Recruiters may also fax, mail, or email current career opportunities that are available in their organization. Our recruiting staff posts openings on KU Career Connections, which is accessible by our registered students and alumni. Your opportunity listing includes the position description, desired candidate qualifications, and recruiting dates for this position. Students and alumni may view this information, post their resumes for your review, and include other documentation required by employers such as a cover letter or writing sample. Career Opportunity Listings are often distributed to professors in related departments for announcement to their classes and listing on their student list-serve. Career opportunities are also posted in the Career Center Resource Library, which is available to all of our students.
Recruiters may choose to hold an information session at a convenient location on campus or other local facility the evening before interviews, or several weeks prior to interviews. These events provide opportunities to meet students in a less formal environment. Many employers bring KU alumni from their organizations to speak to potential candidates about the career opportunities available, their school-to-hire experiences and their current career path. Our recruiting professionals will assist with location, reservations of facilities and online publicity for these sessions.
Employers may mail or bring employer information, brochures, company informational binders and other items for placement in the UCC Lobby for viewing by students and visitors. Your employer information keeps your name in front of our students year round. We suggest binders with testimonials from KU alumni who work for your organization.
Recruiters are encouraged to advertise their campus activities and employment opportunities in the student newspaper, The University Daily Kansan. This publication is distributed Monday-Friday throughout the campus during the academic year. Another form of advertising is through employer flyers and posters that can be posted in student populated areas such as the Student Union, dormitories and eating facilities, and in various academic buildings. Our recruiting professionals will arrange to distribute your flyers and posters throughout the campus.
Recruiters are invited to conduct workshops that are open to all KU students and alumni. Suggested workshop topics have included: First Day on the Job, The Successful Candidate, Resumes That Work or Buzz Words for Our Industry. These workshops provide students a unique view of the professional world and provide employers an opportunity to introduce their organization and their organizational culture to a diverse student population. If you would like to participate in these events, please contact our recruiting staff.
