Building A Campus Presence

In addition to posting a job in our database or scheduling campus interviews, there are several ways for employers to increase their campus presence.

Career Fairs

Attend one of our campus career fairs which are conducted throughout the year and provide employers with broad access to our students.  Typically our 2 major career fairs are held in September and February but we also offer individual departmental fairs for some majors.

Employer Information Booth

Why not schedule your own private career fair?  We invite you to staff a table in Martin Hall during a school day to meet students between classes and promote your organization and any available opportunities.

Employer Information Session

Reach a large group of students by arranging an information session before your on-campus interview date or simply to increase your organization's visibility and generate applicants.

Engineering Student Societies

If you would like to schedule your information session through a student society, you are welcome to contact the organization directly. We ask that you also let Deb Vidmar, dvidmar@umd.edu, know about the event so that Engineering Career Services can help advertise and provide logistical support, if needed.  A list of the officers can be found at, 2016-17 Engineering Student Society Presidents.

Recruiter-in-Residence Opportunities

Employer-Led Workshops
Each year several employers lead workshops that assist our students in their career development. Topics include resume development, interviewing skills, career fair preparation, making the transition from school to work, evaluating salary offers, personal finance, the federal employment process, and professional etiquette. If you have any area of expertise that you would like to share, we would be happy to schedule a session at your convenience.

Resume Clinics
If you prefer to work with students one-on-one; volunteer for a resume clinic. Students bring their resumes or cover letters in hopes of getting an employer's point of view. This is an excellent opportunity for students to interact with you on an informal basis.

Mock Interviews
Meet some of our students while they get an opportunity to practice their interview skills.  Set up a schedule with 30-minute interview blocks. This includes you offering the student 10 minutes of constructive feedback. We will provide sample interview questions or you may bring your own.

Contact us to participate in any of our Recruiter-in-Residence programs.

Advertise in Student Publications

The Diamondback is our main campus newspaper and is available in print and online. When placing an ad be sure to include the application deadline, as well as information about the position(s) you are seeking to fill.  If you have listed your position in our online database, refer students to Careers4Engineers or Careers4Terps for application information.
