Updates for Employers from the University Career Center

Workforce Updates

We realize that COVID-19 is impacting participation in campus recruitment events and workforce planning.  If you anticipate that your organization will need to alter or cancel your summer 2020 internship or co-op programs, or revoke offers of full-time employment made to graduating Auburn University students, please let us know immediately so we can work with you to determine next steps. Please email Heather Rush at hrush@auburn.edu or Dr. Charlie Wilder at cww0035@auburn.edu.

 Virtual Recruiting Events 

If you would like to host a virtual recruiting event (i.e. interviews or information sessions) we are happy to assist you. You can post your virtual event on Handshake under your events tab. This will take less than five minutes! Please be sure to let us know about your virtual event and we will promote it to our students. Please contact Heather Rush at hrush@auburn.edu for more information.

Students will continue to have access to Handshake, and we encourage you to utilize these resources as ways to effectively recruit and connect with our students.

If you have not yet registered for an account with Handshake, you can easily set one up. Here is a step-by-step tutorial. If you have questions or would like for us to walk you through registration, please email Mary Katherine Brasher at mkb0079@auburn.edu.

 Fall 2020 Career Fairs

We hope to share additional information about fall 2020 recruiting towards the end of the spring 2020. As soon as plans are finalized, events will be posted in Handshake.

Co-op Recruiting
