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 recruitment strategy—on-campus, virtual, or both—that will adapt quickly as your talent needs and travel capacity 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 resume workshops, career fairs, networking opportunities, and campus interviews, the CCD instills professionalism in Chambers College students, create experiential learning opportunities, and shaping the business leaders of the future. View Fall 2020 Schedule of Events.

On-Campus Interviews

The CCD welcomes the opportunity to host employers recruiting for both full-time and internship opportunities. Interviews are typically conducted in private rooms within the Business & Economics Building and provided free of charge (except the day after career fairs).

Marketing

On-campus interviews will be advertised to qualified students through several avenues, including Handshake, social media, e-mails, and faculty endorsements. Organizations are encouraged to provide detailed information, including marketing fliers, social media posts, etc. to enhance student marketing efforts. 

Types of Interview Schedules

  • Open schedules are first-come, first-served. Eligible students who meet the employer's requirements submit an online resume and sign up for a specific time slot.
  • Pre-select schedules allow all students that meet the employer's requirements to submit an on-line resume. The employer will review the submitted resumes and "preselect" those students who will be invited for an interview.
  • Other schedules allow employers to fill their own schedules from career fairs or information sessions.

Career Fair & Event Sponsorship

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 a faculty visit at your office or facility, as well as organize Lunch-and-Learns while you are on campus to discuss curriculum and employment trends. 

Student Organizations

Collaborating with Chambers College student organizations can be a great way to further your recruiting reach and targeting specific populations of students. Contact Abby Buehler at abigail.buehler@mail.wvu.edu for assistance.
