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 Spring 2021 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.
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
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.
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.
Collaborating with Chambers College student organizations can be a great way to further your recruiting reach and targeting specific populations of students. Contact Sarah Glenn at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
