On-Campus Recruitment

Coffee Chats are approximately 1-1.5 hours and allow you to share information about your company/organization, the positions you are hiring for, and the qualifications you look for when hiring. These sessions also provide an opportunity for students and recruiters to network.

We will reserve space and take care of marketing/advertising. 

Interview Days provide an opportunity for you to recruit for specific positions on campus. We can be involved as little or as much as you would like. We will reserve space for you to interview our MPH students, advertise to students/alumni, pre-screen candidate resumes, and create the interview schedule based on your specifications. This is a great way to find high-quality job candidates for your open positions.
