  • Summary

    Are you looking for a way to provide more connection points between students and employers, all without leaving campus? This webinar is designed to share the University Career Center Employer Challenge program as a practical experiential learning opportunity. The Employer Challenge allows students to build deep connections with organizations through short-term, mini-projects that might be virtual, hands-on, case study, and more. Each semester, we engage with different organizations to bring a virtual or in-person project to our campus that students can work on throughout one week to better understand different job functions/industries and solve practical business problems. The goal of the Employer Challenge is to not only help students better understand the employer, but also for employers to generate interest in the organization and the types of positions or internships that are available to new and recent graduates.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Understand how to structure a short-term, hands-on engagement opportunity for students to collaborate and work with an employer;
    • Generate interest in your organization and the types of internships or positions that are available to new and recent graduates; and
    • Identify a cost-saving, flexible way to connect meaningfully with students remotely or in-person.
