Recruit On-Campus

Our On-Campus Recruitment program allows interested employers the opportunity to set up an informational table in our Academic Building lobby on the Utica Campus or Plumley Complex lobby on our Rome Campus and engage with students, faculty, and staff. Many of our students will stop by to learn more about employers and the different career opportunities they have to offer.

We host career fairs for graduating students by Academic School in the spring of each year. Invitations are sent in January to employers who have previously posted positions in Handshake and/or have participated in past recruiting or career fair events.
