Engage With Our Students

A successful campus recruitment strategy is far more than a single presence at the campus recruitment events. You should engage with students multiple times a year if you hope to be top of mind during job searches. The following are ways in which your organization can successfully engage with students and expand your campus presence.

  • Host an Information Session

    Hosting an information session allows you to reach a maximum number of students to promote your organization.Such events are useful in increasing your organization’s visibility on campus. These sessions allow recruiters and potential candidates to meet and exchange information in a more relaxed setting than an interview. For more information please contact bizcareers@ualberta.ca

    We recommend booking with at least three weeks notice in order to properly coordinate and promote your event.

    Tips for a Successful Information Session

  • Be a Mentor

    The Alberta School of Business Mentorship Cafe was created to provide Business Students, Alumni and Employer Partners with the opportunity to collaborate, network and engage in professional development in highly-flexible environment. Mentorship connections can range from informal and distance to formal and ongoing.

    A meaningful mentorship connection can be anything from a single discussion that resulted in valuable information sharing to a consistent and ongoing dialogue related to multiple aspects of professional development. Success is not defined by the number or frequency of connections made, but by the quality of interaction and the benefit derived from the connection.

    Mentorship opportunities are available with current students through the Alberta School of Business Mentorship Cafe. Join now to connect with potential mentees, access support and assistance with developing a meaningful mentorship relationship. For more information please contact bizcareers@ualberta.ca

  • Participate in Cooperative Education

    Co-op can help you meet your short term employment needs by giving you access to the best and brightest our faculty has to offer. It also has long term value as well. Co-op students gain understanding of what the job and your organization has to offer and a sense of your culture. They then carry this knowledge back to campus which in turn increases your on-campus presence and positive word of mouth.

    Build strong on-campus presence and increase the appeal of working for your organizations through participation in co-op! For more information please contact bizcareers@ualberta.ca.

  • Engage with Student Clubs

    Our students are active in over 20 undergraduate business clubs, renowned for a strong commitment to linking students to the business community. Student organizations with broad and varied membership coordinate a number of events and activities throughout the year for which corporate sponsorship, guest speakers, exhibitors, and other involvement is sought. As well, the Business Student's Association hosts numerous events in the Fall and Winter terms which enable your organization to connect with all Business students.
