How You Can Help Fairfield Students
Post a Job Opportunity or Internship on Stags4Hire
Stags4Hire is Fairfield University’s primary job and internship posting resource. Fairfield undergraduate and graduate students and alumni have complete access to Stags4Hire. Stags4Hire is a free posting site that provides all participating employers with 24/7 access to job posting and candidate applications. In addition to posting job and internship opportunities, participating employers have the ability to schedule interviews and utilize our on-campus interview facilities.
When you know that a Fairfield student is applying for an opportunity at your company, you can support them by being a resource and facilitating their application through your employer’s hiring process.
Participate in Our Alumni Job Shadow Program
Fairfield’s Alumni Job Shadow Program pairs students with alumni professionals across the Northeast and beyond for a full or half day of rewarding career exploration during winter break. Students have the chance to sharpen their career focus, network with Fairfield alumni in a field they’re interested in, and enhance their confidence. Alumni and your organizations likewise have the opportunity to connect with Fairfield students and build awareness of your company and opportunities available in your field.
Represent Your Employer at Career Fairs
Career Fairs are popular among job seekers and employers alike. They offer opportunities for individuals seeking employment, or in some cases internships, to meet with several employers. Employers attend Career Fairs to meet many candidates and identify individuals who will be invited for a more in-depth interview.
Participate in Events on Campus
Fairfield hosts many opportunities for employers to connect with students on campus such as Info Sessions, Exploration Days, Mock Interviews, and Resume Reviews, etc. Contact Deirdre Bennett, manager of Employer Engagement, to make arrangements.
Schedule On-Campus Interviews
On-campus recruiting for seniors at Fairfield takes place September through April. On-campus recruiting for junior summer non-credit internships also takes place during September through April. Employers interested in arranging on-campus interview dates are encouraged to phone Sharon Walsh at 203-254-4000, ext. 2261 or e-mail.
Speak to an Organization on Campus
Student organizations are an excellent way to make a connection and strengthen your brand on campus. Consider presenting to one of Fairfield’s 80+ student clubs or organizations about a current industry topic, career development, and other relevant issues. Contact Deirdre Bennett, manager of Employer Engagement, to make arrangements.
