Formal and Informal On-Campus Recruiting Program

Formal On-Campus Recruiting Program

Purdue University’s Formal On-Campus Recruiting Program connects you with a diverse pool of students with strong work ethics, transferable skills and practical experience. Formal On-campus recruiting is typically used by employers with high-volume hiring needs to recruit for internship/experiential learning experiences and entry-level positions; however it can also be used to recruit for advanced, experienced positions and for Masters Degree candidates.

Your position is advertised in CareerTrax, PUC’s online job board, and all interviewing takes place in Purdue University Calumet’s interview room conveniently located in our career center.

At least one interviewing schedule in the fall and spring helps you build a strong reputation and presence on campus.   As an employer, you may also pre-select the students you would like to interview prior to your scheduled date and by viewing your interview schedules online. Call our office  at (219) 989-2600 early to set your on-campus interviewing date(s).

Informal On-Campus recruiting

Scheduling informal on-campus recruiting dates allows employers the opportunity to set up tables in the concourse and casually interact with students. This type of event allows employers to market their opportunities without the stress of a formal job fair or interview situation. This allows organizations a chance to potentially reach a different student base to fill their part- time, full- time, or even seasonal positions.

There is no charge to set up this type of recruiting event. Informal recruiting dates can be scheduled all year long as well as multiple times throughout the year. To schedule your informal recruiting visits, please contact our office at (219) 989-2600
