On-Campus Recruiting

Career Services offers comprehensive services to help employers and human resource professionals meet their professional staffing needs. We encourage you to contact our office if we can assist you. Our goal is to bring UM students and quality employers, such as yourself, together to achieve the best possible match for both parties.

The On-Campus Interview

We will arrange interviews between your organization's representatives and The University of Montana students and alumni. By providing our office with information about the goals of your recruiting visit, our office is able to set-up an interview schedule that meets your needs. Recruiting can occur fall or spring semester. When deciding on an interview date, please allow enough time for students to research your company and apply for your positions.

Our Recruiting Coordinator is available to you for any questions you may have in the time before the interviews. You will receive confirmation information about your event to allow you to prepare. Upon arrival on-campus, you'll be assigned private interviewing rooms located in our office. You will be given a copy of the resume for each student who is on your interview schedule.

Career Services uses Griz eRecruiting, a web-based career management system, to assist you in managing your human resource needs. From this system, you will be able to not only post positions, but also monitor sign-ups for your on-campus interviews.

Employer Information Sessions

Holding an information session before your company interviews enables your recruiter to meet with students in a more casual atmosphere. You may want to present company information and details about a typical day's job or give a presentation on a specific topic. Information sessions are also a good way to increase your visibility among underclassmen for upcoming recruitment seasons. Career Services would be happy to arrange for a location, audio/visual equipment, and catering.

Employer Showcases in the University Center

Employers can make a short visit to campus to highlight their company and increase student knowledge of opportunities available. Tables in the busy University Center are an excellent way to speak to students in a informal atmosphere.

Career Fairs

The Career Services Office holds Career Fairs for students and employers each semester.

The Health Professions Career Fair, is held each fall. If you are a company representative recruiting students majoring in health professions such as: Physical Therapy, Pharmacy, Pharmacy Technology, Radiologic Technology, Nursing, Respiratory Care, Surgical Technology, Medical Information Technology or Medical Assisting, then this career fair is for you!

The Big Sky Career Fair, offering full-time employment, internships, summer and part-time job opportunities, is held each spring.

The Educator's Career Fair, held in the spring, gives teacher candidates and school districts a central place to meet and make employment decisions.
