We offer a broad range of customizable options for you to connect with our students and recruit qualified interns and full-time employees. There are many ways to increase your visibility, promote your organization and recruit Elon students. We find that more successful recruiters stay active on campus and utilize a diversified recruiting strategy. Please review the options and resources below and contact us to tailor a recruitment strategy to best meet your organization’s needs.

Employer in Residence
Whether you want to conduct mock interviews, conduct resume critiques, meet faculty, or dine with future candidates, our Employer in Residence program is a powerful way to strengthen your recruiting relationship with Elon. This is also a great way to send alumni back to campus to help attract more top Elon talent to your organization.
By hosting an information session you can educate students about your organization and the opportunities available. Typically, information sessions are held from 5 to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, beginning in mid-September through November and mid-February through April.
Employer outreach tables are an impactful way to connect with students and extend your brand on campus throughout the day in a casual-setting. We are happy to reserve a table for you in a high-traffic student area anytime during the academic year.
We have a select number of suites designed exclusively for on-campus interviews located in both the Student Professional Development Center and the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business.

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. This is when we hope you will consider our virtual engagement options.
We have designed a state-of-the-art Skype interview suite for our students to use through advance reservation. This suite gives our students a professional and quiet space to interview.
Virtual Information Session
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. We also have multi-screen capabilities, should you wish to show a PowerPoint on one screen and be visible on the other.
Companies that hosted virtual information sessions at Elon during the 2012 – 2013 academic year include Volkswagen of America and Google.
Virtual Job and Internship Expo Booth
This is our first year offering a limited number of employers the opportunity to host a Virtual Information Booth at our 2013 Fall Job and Internship Expo. A Virtual Information Booth consists of a table, a large screen behind the table, a head-set 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 the entirety of the Expo. A Corporate and Employer Relations staff member will help invite students to speak individually via the headset and microphone with recruiters.
A reduced fee does apply for hosting a Virtual Job and Internship Expo Booth. Please inquire for details.
