Host employers to share your news & learn their news

Recruiters conduct on-campus interviews in Career Services, seeking students from specific academic disciplines to fill jobs in a variety of organizations.

Recruiters are often available for lunch appointments with faculty or other departmental representatives. Your department is invited to host a recruiter for lunch at the Union Market or at a local restaurant.

Hosting an on-campus recruiter leads to higher visibility and an increased sense of partnership.

Hosting a lunch can yield productive collaborations as well as increased opportunity for your students.

We encourage you to include a Career Services liaison in the lunch invitation, to help build a targeted understanding of available services and benchmark what others have done.

To indicate your interest in hosting an on-campus recruiter during the upcoming on-campus interviewing period, call (937) 775-2556 or email career_services@wright.edu
