ABOUT EMORY

Enrolling more than 14,900 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, Emory University is home to nine major academic divisions, numerous centers for advanced study, and a host of prestigious affiliated institutions. In addition to Emory College, the university encompasses a graduate school of arts and sciences, professional schools of medicine, theology, law, nursing, public health, and business. Oxford College, a two-year undergraduate division, is located on Emory’s original campus in Oxford, GA. Founded in 1836, Emory is recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts college, superb professional schools, and leading health care systems. The university is an inquiry-driven, ethically engaged, and diverse community whose members work collaboratively for positive transformation in the world through courageous leadership in teaching, research, scholarship, health care, and social action. It is unsurprising, then, that employers frequently cite the critical thinking skills, ability to communicate effectively, and problem solving as top reasons to recruit Emory students. We welcome you to visit campus and to learn first-hand what separates Emory students from the rest.

EMPLOYER OPPORTUNITIES

JOB POSTINGS Handshake is Emory’s free online job board to post full-time, internship, and part-time job opportunities for undergraduate students in Emory College and the Goizueta Business School. Handshakelso hosts on-campus interviews, information sessions. Career Fairs and other Career Center events exclusively available to students and alumni served through the Emory University Career Center. Posting a position through Handshake is free of charge. • Attract the “right” candidates by including a detailed job description that clearly outlines responsibilities and requirements to help stduents understand the position. • Make sure the job functions added to your position description match the job to ensure you will receive applications from candidates who filter through Handshake using this search criteria. • Do not post a position for longer than 60-90 days; we find students tend to wait until the deadline to apply, which may limit your applications should you have more immediate hiring needs. • Include a detailed list of typical tasks, projects and responsibilities.

CAREER FAIRS Career fairs serve as great educational and pre-recruitment tools, providing employers with an opportunity to network with Emory’s talented undergraduates, building invaluable relationships on campus. Our fairs regularly draw 800+ students. We offer a large spring and fall career fair each year. • Be sure to post your job posting(s) at least 1-2 weeks before the fair. • Engage with students of all class years; younger students participate in our fairs and want to learn about future opportunities. • Consider sponsorship opportunities to increase brand awareness.

CAREER DISCOVERY DAYS Career Discovery Days are designed to help Emory students learn what “it is really like” to work in a particular job, industry, or organization through shadowing a professional for a day. Students ranging from first-year to juniors typically participate. To sign up, email recruiting@emory.edu.

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS An Emory tradition, Wonderful Wednesdays are a weekly celebration of the Emory community on Wednesdays from noon to 2:30 p.m. in the center of campus in Asbury Circle. Employers can sign up to cohost a table with the Career Center.

• Coming on campus first does not always equal recruiting success. • The most successful employers maintain a consistent brand and presence on campus. • It is very difficult to utilize class time for recruiting or training purposes. If you are an alum, leverage your alumni connection with faculty for these needs.


HIRE US: DIVERSITY & INCLUSION CAREER FAIR Hire Us is an en event designed to connect students who have historically faced underrepresentation and/or discrimination in work environments and hiring processes with employers committed to building adn supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce. This event is typically held the night before the Spring and Fall Career Fairs. Employers may register for this event on Handshake.

NETWORKING NIGHTS The High Five Networking Series (sponsored by the High Five Foundation) features events designed to bring students face-to-face with industry professionals. The goal is to create a casual atmosphere that encourages candid conversation about decision making, goal setting, and overall career advice.

INFORMATION SESSIONS + EMPLOYER EVENTS Information sessions tend to be well attended at Emory’s campus, provided they are planned 3-4 weeks in advance and coordinated with the recruiting eam. One-hour sessions are allotted for each employer. • Post positions to Handshake before your event. • Timeliness and duration of your event is very important; long events are harder to attract students to participate. • Information sessions should last no longer than one hour; Emory students are typically heavily involved on campus and have limited availability. • Evening information sessions should start at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., or 7:30 p.m. due to class schedules. • Make sure you provide strong marketing language to the recruiting team; this is what we use to promote your event!

RESUME RENOVATION DAY Help undergraduate College of Arts & Sciences students prepare for the recruiting season by providing feedback on their resumes! Each student will receive 10-15 minutes for their critique. While space is limited, we welcome more than one representative from your organization; this can a great way to increase your organization’s exposure at Emory! Employers who participate in the program will be recognized as sponsors of the event in all marketing materials for students.

ON-CAMPUS INTERVIEWS Employers are invited to use one of our eight interview rooms -- available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. -between the approved dates in the Career Center’s recruiting calendar. A typical recruiting day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. including an hour lunch break and two 15-minute breaks. • Select alternate candidates for your interview schedules to maximize your interview slots. • Attach your jobs to the schedule as soon as possible to allow students time to find, review, and apply to your position(s). • Notify the Recruiting Team if you have not filled your schedule so we can elimintate empty time slots.
