On-Campus OpportunitiesThe Wesleyan Career Center uses eRecruiting (MyCC) to facilitate the on-campus job posting and interviewing process. MyCC enables employers to easily post job descriptions, view applicant resumes and cover letters and make decisions for interviewing candidates via the internet. If you wish to list a position for undergraduate students in Wesleyan's system, you can create an account on the site for employers.
On-Campus Recruiting at Wesleyan University takes place during both the Fall and Spring semesters. During the Fall semester, Information Sessions take place starting the second week of September through late November. On-Campus Interviews begin during the first week of October through the first week of December. Fall break typically takes place during the 3rd weekend in October, as well as the Monday and Tuesday of that following week.
During the Spring semester, Information Sessions take place starting the last week of January through the third week of April. On-Campus Interviews begin during the second week of February through the end of April. Spring break typically takes place for two weeks during the middle of March.
Posting Internships and Open Positions
We welcome internship and job postings from employers seeking liberal arts candidates. Online application deadlines for resumes, cover letters, and any other employer-required materials are scheduled Tuesday evenings during the fall and spring semesters. With a MyCC account, you can login to retrieve resumes or receive an e-mailed bundle of submitted materials in Adobe PDF format. If you have a MyCC account please create the internship/job in the system. Please note: We reserve the right to remove postings which are not appropriate for Wesleyan students.
The Liberal Arts Career NetWORK provides a job and internship listing service which gives employers the opportunity to reach students at 30 highly selective, liberal arts colleges with just one posting, for free. For more information and to register and post, please visit http://lacnjobs.org
Wesleyan alumni and parents as well as employers interested in more experienced hires, may also post positions to Cardinal Jobs, our job posting and networking database for alumni. To post a job, search for open positions, or learn how you can become a mentor to current Wesleyan students as well as Wes alumni, be sure to visit Cardinal Jobs and sign up for an account. It's easy and free!
Information Sessions and Tables
Information sessions provide a venue for students and employers to interact regarding workplace culture, expectations, and recruiting methods. They may also aid in generating interest in an upcoming resume collection. Information sessions typically last about an hour and are held in meeting or class rooms which house AV equipment allowing for PowerPoint or DVD presentations. Ideally, information sessions are held at least a week prior to an online application deadline. Catering referrals are available. Please inquire when you schedule your information session. If you are interested in setting up an information session, please call Persephone Hall at (860) 685-2180 or send an e-mail request to email@example.com.
We welcome employers interested in interviewing Wesleyan students to join us in the Career Center for a day of on-campus interviews. Employers provide a job description to which students apply with the resumes and cover letters through MyCRC. Students are then pre-selected by the employer from submitted resumes. A typical schedule includes 12 - 13 interview slots, thirty minutes each, beginning at 8:45am or 9:00am. (Schedules can be adjusted to suit an employer's needs.) Create an account in MyCC to enter and edit information about your organization, such as company description, web address, and recruiting contacts, and to post the qualifications for the internships/jobs you would like to publicize. Please contact Persephone L. Hall, Associate Director, Employer Relations at 860-685-2180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an interview schedule. We also encourage employer representatives to use MyCRC to make interview selections.
We provide students with an opportunity to portray an actual interview scenario based on their interests with immediate feedback. Usually during the Fall Semester, time is set aside during Mock Interview Week for alumni and employer partners to conduct Mock Interviews with students possessing similar career interests and again offer relevant feedback. If you are interested in engaging students in mock interviews, please contact Anne Santaniello, Assistant Director, Employer Relations at 860/685-2180 anytime during the academic year.
The Career Outlook Program provides Wesleyan undergraduates an opportunity to explore careers through shadowing a Wesleyan alumni or parents during Winter Break. Shadow opportunities can range from 1 day to 2 weeks and may include observing a professional, participating in a specific project within an organization or business.
Employers that participate in our Career Fair enable employers to identify quality candidates for internships, entry level or experience professional positions. It is also an ideal opportunity to increase your company's presence on campus. Information regarding upcoming fairs can be obtained by calling the Career Center at 860/685-2180.
