Stay Connected to Top Talent

Let us know how you would like to partner by reaching out to Amanda Wheaton, employer relations coordinator at hire@lclark.edu.

Registration is now open for our Fall Joint Virtual Career Fair with Lewis & Clark, Seattle Pacific University, University of Puget Sound, and St. Martin’s on Thursday, Oct. 28, 2021!
  • We had 78 employers connect with 575 registered students in our Joint Spring Fair. We are hoping for an even better turnout in the fall!

Here are our main tips for what you can do to stay in touch with L&C Pioneers!

1. Continue Posting Jobs & Internships

Students are seeking opportunities! Keep posting your job and internship opportunities to Handshake.

2. Host Virtual Events

The best fall dates to hold your virtual events for our students include Sept. 13th - Oct. 1st and Oct. 12th - Nov. 12th per our academic calendar.

Consider offering a Q&A session on Zoom, hosting a content talk, or scheduling one on one chats with interested candidates.

You can list your virtual events on Handshake by choosing the event type “Virtual” and entering your event URL in the designated space. If you prefer to provide the URL to only those students who RSVP, type “Virtual” as your event location, then send the information to the list of students who register.

We can help you set up your virtual events! Email your event details to hire@lclark.edu and we will market them to our students directly.

3. Message Candidates Directly

Handshake allows you to directly message students who fit your criteria to be qualified candidates. Using filters, you can search for students and share directly about your organizations’ opportunities.
Direct messages can also drive attendees to your virtual events as well as applicants to your jobs.

Students are understandably anxious, as we all are at this time. Communicating with them early and often will be helpful to ensure you retain a great candidate and reduce their uncertainty about the future.

4. Embrace Digital Recruiting

Handshake has a number of resources to help you explore how to move your recruiting activities online. From webinars to guides and best practices, check out Handshake’s Virtual Toolkit for Employers.

Other digital recruiting resources include:

5. Get Set for Future (In-Person!) Events

We know the direct connection to Pios on campus is an excellent way to source candidates and will remain so in the future. Email Amanda Wheaton to set up a time to talk and strategize about how best to do this in the future.

Don’t hesitate to reach out
