Are you an employer interested in connecting with us? Career Services offers a variety of ways for you to reach Worcester State undergraduate and graduate students and recent alumni.
Whether you are looking to hire a full-time or part-time employee or a student intern, we can connect you with well-qualified applicants to meet your needs. We are always interested in speaking with you directly about how to most effectively support your recruitment needs.
If you’re looking to hire a Worcester State student, we use Handshake as our career and internship management system for all students (undergraduate, graduate, and recent alumni). This is one-stop shopping for recruiting; post jobs and internships, register for recruitment events, schedule on-campus and virtual interviews, and more. Create your user account and company page today to get started.
Career Services sends out a weekly email and a monthly newsletter; we also maintain an active social media presence. Reach out to our office at email@example.com to request that your event or position be highlighted in our digital marketing.
Our information/recruiting tables can be set up in high-traffic locations around our campus during the fall and spring semesters. (Check Worcester State’s Academic Calendar for dates.) Employers interested in on-campus recruiting should be hiring for internship and/or professional or pre-professional roles. There is no fee to reserve a table. However, this service is offered exclusively to employers with Handshake accounts.
Note: Upon our authorization, you will be responsible for managing this event in Handshake.

Successful on-campus recruitment requires planning. Please note that the scheduling of all tables is dependent on date and space availability.

As Worcester State’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 Worcester State faculty to host our students in practicums and clinicals. We welcome proposals for original programming as well.
If you are interested in recruiting students in a specific academic department, speaking in front of a class, or connecting with a student affinity group on campus, please contact Career Services. We will act as a liaison if the connection is welcomed by the group and is an appropriate match.
Volunteer to serve as a resource for students interested in learning more about your career field through informational interviews or as a practice interviewer for mock interviews.
