The Gacioch Center for Career and Professional Development values your commitment to recruiting Niagara University students. We offer a variety of options to support your recruiting needs, build the brand of your organization on campus, and engage with undergraduate and graduate students. We are excited to partner with you to develop an individualized campus recruitment strategy and help you to #HireNU. While below are ways in which employers have found success in the past, we are certainly open to other strategies as well.
- Post internship/job opportunities on Handshake: The Get Hired Portal. Once you create an account on Handshake, you will gain access to student resumes and campus events.
- Reserve a time for a “meet & greet” to engage students regarding career opportunities with your organization. We can reserve a room for a presentation or set up a table in the various student and academic buildings.
- Facilitate in-person, phone, or virtual interviews to create a talent pool that is easily and quickly accessible.
- We offer a variety of events each semester designed to connect students with employers. Check Handshake for upcoming events!
- An employer partnership program will help to create brand awareness of your organization on campus through personalized engagement opportunities. We offer a variety of marketing channels for your organization to provide unique career content specific to your needs. Employer partners also receive a choice booth placement and increased visibility at career fairs, exclusive access and invitations to campus events, as well as a seat on the employer advisory board.
- Donate to the Career Discovery Internship Fund which provides a stipend to students who are participating in unpaid internships with non-profit or public service organizations.
Hire an Intern
There are many benefits to hiring student interns. Some of the biggest benefits include:
- Quick access to qualified potential workers before they graduate.
- Students are highly motivated, bright and eager to see the practical side of what they have learned in class.
- Student schedules are usually flexible.
- Students join the work force at relatively low cost.
- If hired after graduation, students are already trained.
- Students free up other employees to pursue additional tasks
