CCD Response to COVID-19

We're committed as ever to providing excellent customer service to our employer partners. We will work with your organization to create a virtual recruitment strategy that will adapt quickly as your talent needs evolve.

Handshake

WVU has transitioned to Handshake, the leading early talent platform official partner of 700+ colleges and universities. This platform allows employers to post internship and career opportunities for all majors, schedule on-campus interviews, search student resumes, and register for career fairs and events.

Career Fairs and Events

Through virtual resume workshops, career fairs, networking opportunities, and interviews, the CCD instills professionalism in Chambers College students, creates experiential learning opportunities, and shapes the business leaders of the future. View Fall 2020 Schedule of Events.

Virtual Interviews/Info Sessions

This fall, WVU will be embracing a fully virtual campus recruitment experience. The CCD is here to help your organization adapt to a virtual interviewing process as well as explore ways to connect and engage with students in place of traditional pre-night networking events. Requests can be submitted through Handshake.

Marketing

Virtual interviews and info sessions will be advertised to qualified students through several avenues, including Handshake, e-mails, and faculty endorsements. Organizations are encouraged to provide detailed information, including marketing fliers and branded email content to enhance student marketing efforts. 

Types of Virtual Interview Schedules

There are three main scenarios employers will be utilizing this fall; however, the CCD is happy to accommodate other scheduling formats that better support organizational needs. 

  • Handshake Exclusive. Use Handshake to manage applications and to schedule interviews.
  • Hybrid. Use Handshake to manage applications but schedule interviews through another system already being leverage by the organization (e.g. Yello).
  • External ATS Exclusive. Post positions in Handshake but have students apply through the organization's ATS and manage all interview schedules through a separate platform.

Best Practices from Handshake

Sponsorships 

Increase your visibility while supporting valuable career programs. Sponsors receive broad and targeted marketing exposure that enhance both your recruitment and consumer brands. We can create customized, multi-event packages at a reduced cost.

Faculty Partnerships 

Connecting with faculty is one of the most effective ways to identify and recruit the right talent for your organization. We can schedule virtual faculty meetings to discuss curriculum and employment trends.
