Career Development

Career Development's mission is to help students plan and prepare for life after graduation. We accomplish this by providing individual advising appointments and assessments, hosting recruiting and networking events, electronically posting opportunities through our career management system, coordinating mock interviews, and making formal presentations to groups (class visits, information sessions, club meetings, preview, and orientation, etc.).

The University of Mount Union is pleased to partner with Handshake to provide a new career management system where students may search for jobs and internships, and where employers may post jobs and internships. Our official launch date is September 10, 2018. As this is a new platform, please be patient as we work through the nuances of this system and process the large volume of requests. Students and employers may register using the link in resources.

Employers and Recruiters


JOB AND INTERNSHIP FAIRS

If you would like to meet our students please consider attending one or more of the following events. Please read our policies prior to registering for any of these events.

RECRUITER INFORMATION

Recruiting Policies. All employers who wish to participate in any type of recruiting activity with the University of Mount Union must read our recruiting policies and abide by these policies.  The Career Development Office should be your first/primary point of contact, as all recruiting activity needs to be approved by the Career Development Office beforehand.

Employers who would like to increase their name recognition with the student body may want to consider spending a day with us to offer mock interviews. Students benefit by the feedback employers provide on their interview style. Employers benefit from word-of-mouth publicity and the opportunity to identify potential candidates. For more information, contact Sara Fugett at fugettsb@mountunion.edu or (330) 829-8211.

Employers who would like to attend our recruiting events or post jobs and internships must register on Handshake, our new career management system.  All employers who register on this system will be vetted prior to approval.  Once approved, they will be able to post professional level positions and internships and will automatically be included on our invitation list for recruiting events.
