If you are hearing a lot of buzz about on-campus recruiting but not seeing many opportunities for your program, you might think the companies or industries you are interested in must not recruit during the fall. That couldn’t be farther from the truth! In reality, companies who participate in on-campus recruiting events at ASU are just a small sample of all employers hiring.
Many companies participate in global recruiting processes throughout the fall semester. These processes often include recruitment events that students can attend from any campus. With many companies shifting to a virtual recruiting strategy for the fall (and potentially beyond), these opportunities could now be more accessible than ever before. It’s all about finding the recruiting events and conferences your target companies are attending and leaning into the process by taking initiative to make connections with them.
Don’t hold off on your job search until the spring semester when you may have already missed opportunities. Check out the article What To Do If Your Dream Company Doesn’t Recruit On Your Campus for advice on finding positions to apply for and schedule an appointment with your career coach early on to discuss your job search strategy.
