Hiring

iSchool graduates are workplace-ready because our programs use a blend of theory, hands-on learning, and professional experience. Whether you’re looking to offer an internship or hire for a full-time position, we can help you find the talent you’re seeking.

We recommend that prospective employers create an employer account on Handshake, Syracuse University’s career networking platform. Students search for internships and jobs on this platform.

Ways to Recruit Students

iSchool Career Fairs are our biggest recruiting event, held at the beginning of each fall and spring semester. Career Fairs are intense and rewarding, and are the culmination of several weeks of preparation by our students. Whether you’re looking for hire for full-time employment or summer internships, we welcome you to meet our talented students.
These formal presentations give students an overview of your company, opportunities within, and your recruiting process.

Share your expertise in the field by guest lecturing. You can help students connect their classes to their career goals. Contact us to see if there’s a good fit for you to visit one of our classrooms.

By tabling in Hinds Hall, you give students an opportunity to learn about your company and engage with you in a relaxed setting. Your presence in our bustling main lobby can help promote awareness of your brand.
