Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development

This summer, the Fleishman moved from eRecruiting to a new software vendor that has been branded hireBING. This new software allows for significant improvements in customization. For example, departments can now be offered “job widgets” which provide a customized listing of current job and internship opportunities able to be displayed on a department website. Students view listings and are then directed to hireBING to see application instructions. hireBING is also able to offer faculty/staff accounts that allow them to log in to hireBING and access employer, job and internship listing information, including on-campus recruiting activity such as interviews, career fairs and employer information sessions.

Students flocked to the Fall 2014 Job & Internship Fair.

The Fleishman Center also hosted the best-attended Job & Internship Fair in recent memory in September with an estimated 2,000 students attending. Employers indicated they were extremely pleased overall, and a reception held following the fair, intended to provide a “wind down” for the employers as well as an opportunity to connect with faculty/administrators, was well received. Campus partners who attended also comment what a great idea it was to host a reception.
