On-Campus Recruiting is a great opportunity to connect with talented Wake Tech students and increase the visibility of your organization. Several options include hosting a recruiting table, attending a career fair or participating in an info session.

Hosting an on site job shadow day is a great way for students to explore the work environment, learn about different job opportunities, experience “a day in the life”and make connections.

Participating in info sessions as part of a class, or an open lunch and learn visit. These visits provide a casual atmosphere for students to learn about your organizations culture and opportunities.

Virtual events are great ways to connect with our students and alumni. We can help you coordinate virtual career fairs, information sessions, networking events and site tours.
