Are you, or is someone you know, in a position to hire an intern or an employee? Turn to the Vassar network!
Vassar students are great candidates for internships or entry-level positions. When considering your next professional vacancy, please keep Vassar students in mind. The Career Development Office (CDO) offers a variety of ways to connect with Vassar talent, outlined below.
Post your internship or job opportunity to Vassar
The Career Development Office (CDO) uses a central database called Handshake to advertise job and internship opportunities to Vassar students and young alumae/i. You are welcome to create an employer account on Handshake to post available opportunities.
Alternatively, you can email a complete job description to email@example.com with the pertinent details. We will advertise your opportunity, along with a deadline date by which students must submit their materials via Handshake. Opportunities referred by Vassar alumnae/i, parents and other friends of Vassar receive a special notation in Handshake, making them more attractive to students.
Recruit on campus at Vassar
We welcome the opportunity to host employers for information sessions, on-campus interviews, and/or virtual interviews. If you would like to set up an on-campus visit for an information session or interviews, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you with marketing, setup, and logistics.
Recruit off campus in NY, DC and virtually
If your organization has multiple openings to fill (internship or full-time) and/or a regular recruiting cycle, consider participating in our consortium-based recruiting events. The Selective Liberal Arts Consortium (SLAC) offers the opportunity for employers to interview bright, talented students from Vassar as well as 6 more of the nation’s most selective and competitive liberal arts colleges: Bates College, Bryn Mawr College, Colorado College, Grinnell College, Haverford College, and Washington and Lee University. They sponsor City Recruiting Days in New York City and Washington DC, as well as several Video Interview Days throughout the academic year:
September Video Interview Day– Thursday, September 28, 2017
New York Recruiting Day (New York City) – Friday, Jan. 5, 2018
DC Recruiting Day (Washington) – Monday, Jan. 8, 2018
March Video Interview Day – Thursday, March 8, 2018
Recruit via the Liberal Arts Career Network
Vassar is also a member of another prominent consortium, the Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN). LACN provides a job and internship listing service that can reach over 60,000 students at 39 highly selective, small, private liberal arts colleges with just one posting, for free. If you would like to extend your job or internship opportunity beyond the Vassar community, consider listing it with the Liberal Arts Career Network (LACN).
Host a Career Conversation on campus
For students there is often no better inspiration for life after Vassar than to hear the stories of those who have paved the way. If you are planning a visit to campus, consider hosting a “career conversation.” It’s a great opportunity to discuss your path and educate students about a career field, or share whatever advice or expertise you’d like to impart.
Host a corporate/organization visit
Can’t come to us? We’ll come to you! We’d love to visit your organization to tour your facilities, meet your representatives and give you chance to engage with our students in the New York area.
