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