Employer Engagement

We would like to invite you to include Furman University in your recruiting plans for the 2020 – 2021 academic year.  While we understand that COVID-19 has created unique challenges for all of us, we are still here to support employers in connecting with Furman students.  In the interest of safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have shifted all of our recruiting services to a virtual format. Please review the numerous virtual engagement options listed below and be sure to revisit our site as we’ll periodically update with new events and procedures.

Handshake and General Engagement Practices

Handshake is a free, online career management system for communicating jobs, sharing recruiting events, scheduling interviews, and signing up for career fairs or other career related events. For the ’20-’21 academic year, we are moving our career fair (i.e., Opportunity Fair) to the spring. Also, as a note to remember, we encourage employers to schedule information sessions in coordination with candidate interviews for their posted jobs.

Recruiting on Campus

If you have topics which add depth and significance to the classroom, or would like to engage a specific student population, we work with academic departments, student organizations, and the Center for Inclusive Communities to help employers share their knowledge and opportunities. Please share with us your recruiting plans and we’ll work with you to help reach your hiring goals.

Professional and Industry Workshops

In lieu of in-person campus events, the Malone Center is working with campus departments to host industry webinars and virtual recruiting workshops throughout the year. Here are a few examples:

  • Navigating a Virtual Networking Event
  • Creating an All-star LinkedIn Profile
  • Finding Jobs that Make an Impact
  • Careers in the Arts
  • Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
