Thank you for your interest in the Thayer School of Engineering! We appreciate your organization’s efforts to connect with our students and alumni. We offer a number of ways for you to recruit our students and alumni:
Participate in a Career Fair
Whether virtual or on-site, our career fairs bring together students and employers to increase engagement and to explore career opportunities. During the fall term of 2020, our engineering career fair took place virtually in September using Handshake's new career fair platform. In addition, we accomplished both the winter and spring term career fairs in 2021 in the same virtual platform. As of now, we will continue hosting virtual hiring events, until further notice. See our Career Fairs.
Company Information and Tech Sessions
Educate our students about your company culture, open/future opportunities, and your recruiting efforts. Alternatively, host a special interest workshop to prepare students for job searches. Virtual info and tech sessions can be scheduled using Handshake. Or, you may contact Amy Keeler, Associate Director or at 603-646-2375 or email our office.
Post Jobs and Internships
Connect with us on Handshake to post jobs and internships and create your own event.
Whether you travel to Hanover (directions and accommodations) or use a virtual platform, these are still some of the best ways to connect with talented Thayer candidates.
