Recruiting

The Career Center offers a number of opportunities to connect with employers looking to hire Wesleyan students. Handshake is Wesleyan's career management platform through which students can access employer profiles, view the Career Center's calendar of events, keep track of employers coming to campus to host information sessions or on-campus interviews, access subscription-based resources, and apply for full-time jobs, internships, externships, fellowships, and grants. Additionally, students can manage their career development activity all in one place including tracking their current and previous applications and uploading and storing copies of their resume, cover letters, writing samples, unofficial transcripts and other career-related documents. Students can log-in to Handshake here or through their WesPortals

On-Campus Recruiting

On-campus recruiting provides students with the opportunity to engage with a variety of employers interested in hiring Wesleyan students. As a student, you can attend on-campus information sessions and webinars in order to network with employers and learn more about their organizations. Students can search and apply for jobs and internships through Handshake, and have the opportunity to interview on-campus with a number of top employers. On-Campus Recruiting takes place during both the Fall and Spring semesters. We encourage you to participate in our many on-campus recruiting information sessions, interviews, and networking events. 

As a senior, to participate in on-campus recruiting you must complete the following steps:

• Attend a Senior Meeting. These meetings are scheduled for the first week of the fall semester.
• Read and acknowledge the Code of Conduct box when you log in to Handshake.
• Have your resume approved by a Gordon Career Center counselor.

Please visit the event calendar on Handshake to see upcoming events & employers coming to campus.
