Virtual Recruiting
Our preference is to host you on campus. We think there is no better way for you to get to know Elon than to be on our beautiful campus to meet with staff, students, and faculty. However, we realize in-person visits may not always be possible. We hope you will consider our virtual engagement options.

Virtual Class Visits
On a limited basis, we invite you to engage with our students and faculty members during class periods, via Skype or Google+Hangouts.

Virtual Information Sessions
Host an information session about your company or organization from the comfort of your desk chair. We use Google+Hangouts or Skype to connect you with our students. We set-up a web camera and a microphone on our end too, so you can see and hear your audience. Companies that hosted virtual information sessions at Elon in the past include Volkswagen of America, Google, Wolf Trap Center for Performing Arts, Global Health Corp, and more.

Virtual Job & Internship Expo Booths
We are offering a limited number of employers the opportunity to host a Virtual Information Booth at our Job and Internship Expo. A Virtual Information Booth consists of a table, a large screen/laptop at a table, a headset and a microphone. We will dress the table and lay out recruiting material on your behalf should you be able to send those materials to campus in advance. We ask recruiters to be connected via Skype or Google+Hangouts for at least one hour during the event. A staff member will help invite students to speak individually via the headset and microphone with recruiters during the event.

Virtual Student Organization 
Are you interested in recruiting members of a particular student group? Our office is happy to act a liaison to help connect you with our student leaders and faculty advisors to virtual set-up conversations with classes or group members.
