Build Your Brand
Every effective university recruiting plan includes “boots on the ground,” including early, frequent, and positive interactions with campus and students that will create and increase your brand awareness on campus.
Each semester, TWU hosts a campus-wide, all majors Career & Internship Fair on our Denton campus, as well as numerous industry related fairs on all three campuses. Find one (or more) that fits your needs.
Host an Information Session
Schedule an informal information session where you’re able to make a presentation about your industry, your company, its culture, and career opportunities. You’ll be able to meet with students before and after your presentation, answer questions, provide tips about how to stand out with their application. Many times information sessions are held in conjunction with on-campus interviews. Please contact Glenn Jensen for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Schedule an Employer Information Table
You’ll have a table set-up for you in a high traffic area to maximize your interaction with students. We invite you to bring your company displays, distribute promotional materials and “SWAG,” and speak with students about your company and opportunities. We’ll promote your campus presence on TWU Connect (we ask that you post any positions for which you’re recruiting, and we’ll include on our promotional materials). Please contact Glenn Jensen for more information: email@example.com
Volunteering your time to present to student organizations and classrooms is a great way to increase your brand awareness, strengthen your relationship with the university, and do some informal recruiting. You’ll also be helping our students with their personal and professional development. You’re presentation will be educational with a professional development or industry related topic, but you can also insert some company promotion. Register and we’ll match you with a requesting student group or faculty member.
The Career Connections Center provides some “Drop-In” hours every day during all 3 semesters for 15 minute advising appointments. We’ll be happy to have you serve as our Career Consultant for a few hours to help students update their resume, strengthen their interview skills, explore industry and career options, and answer career related questions. Register to choose your date and time.
Participate in our Job Shadow Program
Hosting students in your place of business is a great way to increase your brand recognitions, develop and strengthen a potential recruiting relationship with the university and TWU students, and it gives you the opportunity to mentor a pre-professional student, helping them understand your industry, your company and its culture, as well as helping them in their self-exploration and get a glimpse of the world of work.
The Lasso is a weekly university publication, written for, and produced by, students, providing important and relevant news, entertainment, and commentary and serving the Dallas, Denton, and Houston campuses.
