LIFE AT WSU

  • Services for Employers and Recruiters

    Worcester State University’s Career Services Office is your connection for recruiting from our pool of talented undergraduate and graduate students and alumni. WSU students:

    • Conduct innovative research and develop creative ideas with acclaimed faculty; engage in service learning opportunities in the community; and pursue study away opportunities in the United States and abroad
    • Are prepared to take on real-world challenges with portfolios that include critical-thinking, teamwork, problem-solving, communication, technology, and global-awareness skills
  • In Career Services, we consider our work with employers a partnership effort. Our goal is to achieve the best match possible between individual students and employing organizations.

    Employers must set up an account in LancerLink, our online internship and job database, to access all of our employer services, including a consultation session and information/recruiting table scheduling.
     
  • Consultation Session
    Employers with LancerLink accounts can take advantage of the exclusive opportunity to speak with a Career Services staff member to discuss recruiting needs and strategies. Once you have your LancerLink account set up, please contact us to schedule a 15-minute telephone consultation.

    As WSU's main resource for employer-student relations, let us help you to create a streamlined plan for an on-campus presence at our information/recruiting tables, fairs, and other events. Our discussion will focus on developing your existing efforts with regards to interviewing and recruiting our students for internship, part-time, and full-time employment opportunities.

    We also invite your representatives to contact us to express interest in collaborating with WSU faculty to host our students in practicums and clinicals. We welcome proposals for original programming as well.

    Reverse Career Fair
    Reverse career fairs are the latest in talent recruitment endeavors occurring on higher education campuses through the United States. At WSU, we hold our Reverse Career Fair in conjunction with our annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity. This format is intended for employers to view the critical thinking and problem solving our students are perfecting in a wide range of disciplines.

    Instead of the traditional career fair set-up, our students stand at display tables showcasing posters of their original academic work. Hiring employers walk from table to table to learn more about students’ projects. Projects range from research posters to analytical papers to performances.

    This year’s Reverse Career Fair will take place Wednesday, April 11, 2018, from 3 to 5 p.m. in our Wellness Center. If you are an employer interested in attending this event, please complete the online registration form by Friday, April 1.
