Let's get recruiting

Recruiting talent:

Hire-A-Niner: our data shows that more than 70% of current students engage with our system which means your key positions will be seen by a wide audience.  Students from technology, analytics, and business programs have an even higher rate of engagement with the system.

Fairs and Networking Nights:

Career Fairs: aside from posting jobs, large career fairs will not only provide your organization with an opportunity for campus-wide branding, but also an opportunity to collect candidates from across the university.  These events are open to all students, alumni, local universities/colleges, and the general public and tend to attract 2000+ candidates and first/second year students for talent pipeline development.

BUILD YOUR TALENT PIPELINE – NINER STYLE

Experiential Education:

Internships/Coops: our office will help you build a structured internship program and recruit potential candidates.

Gigternships: sometimes you may not have projects that last a full semester but still have need for talent for short term experiences.  

Student Projects: talk to a representative about opportunities to develop a course-based project with teams of students and faculty oversight.

Niner Challenges: develop creative ways to provide students with experience while also developing your future talent pipeline.  Hack-a-thons, Case Competitions, Skills Challenges, or other ways to gamify skill development.

Industry and Career Education:

Build your Brand: join in on the facilitation of our Career Meet-Ups, Professional Panels, Practice Interviews, become an “executive in residence”, or develop a Career Trek!  Look to engage with students through our social media and CareerBits Podcast.  Have an idea of something new you want to try?  Let us know!

Deepen your Engagement: engage with our student clubs & organizations, host an event at your company site, partner with us on a new training program or summit, or explore our partners program.
