Ouachita invites employers, recruiters and organizational representatives to campus throughout the academic year to connect with our students and faculty. The Ouachita Career Services team hosts a number of recruitment events each semester and also works closely with employers in a variety of ways. Please let us know how we can work with you!
Attend the Career & Networking Expo
Ouachita’s annual Career & Networking Expo is designed to connect organizations and employers with our students, faculty and recent graduates. Held in the Walker Conference Center, the Expo hosts businesses, nonprofits, ministries, government entities, school districts, graduate programs and more in one centralized location that is ideal for exchanging ideas and contact information.
Our 2014 event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 4th from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. The registration fee is $75 and includes your booth space, lunch and refreshments and promotion of your organization to the Ouachita community. For participants traveling to Arkadelphia, we’ve coordinated our event with the University of Central Arkansas (UCA), whose fair is March 5th, to maximize your travel expenses.
Interview Our Students
We invite you to come to Ouachita during the fall and spring semesters to conduct on-campus interviews with our students. The Ouachita Career Services team actively promotes these interview opportunities and works closely with key faculty and staff to identify students and recent graduates who are potential fits for such opportunities.
If you are interested in providing experience and feedback for our students, we would also love for you to consider conducting mock interviews. This is an invaluable resource for our students and will also allow you to meet potential hires and interns during their sophomore and junior year.
To schedule an on-campus interview or learn more about the process, please contact Lauren Land at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (870) 245-5283. We hope to have you on campus soon!
Post Job & Internship Opportunities
Tiger Career Connection, Ouachita’s exclusive online job posting site for students and alumni, allows you to quickly and easily post internships, part-time and full-time positions at no cost. You have the ability to include descriptions, requirements and hiring criteria and promote the best way for students and alums to apply for these positions.
We invite you to join Tiger Career Connection today and post opportunities! As always, you are welcome to talk directly with Lauren Land at any time about opportunities and we are happy to post and promote these on your behalf.
Employers and organizations have the opportunity to set up in the Evans Student Center throughout the semester to meet with our students in a casual setting. Please contact the Ouachita Career Services staff to discuss this opportunity.
Let Us Know What YOU Need!
The Ouachita Career Services team wants to stay on top of hiring trends and organizational needs so that we can best support our students and alumni in their career development. If your organization has specific needs and insights to share, please let us know how we can best communicate these opportunities to our students, faculty and alumni. We understand the demands of matching needs with quality staff members and we would love to help you do just that!
