Fall 2020 Recruiting

Northwestern Career Advancement will be operating virtually for the fall 2020 quarter. While employers can't recruit on campus in the fall, NCA is still here to support all of your virtual recruiting needs!

Employer Events

Submitting an Event Request

You can submit a request for an employer event in NCA’s career platform, Handshake.

Marketing Your Event

While we cannot send dedicated promotional emails to students on behalf of an employer due to the high volume of marketing material we receive, NCA will include a list of upcoming employer information sessions/recruiting events in our weekly emails to undergraduate and/or graduate students, as well as in industry emails to students who have selected specific career interests in Handshake.

*Please note that organizations will be listed along with other recruiting events that occur during the same day/week.

NCA Employer Events Are Business Casual

In an effort to be more inclusive and to broaden your talent pool, all virtual employer events are business casual for students. We encourage you and your organization’s representatives to also dress in business casual to make students feel more welcome and comfortable.
