Employer Resources

The I School offers opportunities throughout the year to connect with students both on campus and remotely. We are happy to partner with you in building a strong presence at the I School and tailoring a recruiting plan that best fits your needs.

Below are some examples of ways to connect with students. If you are interested in learning more about ways to become involved with the I School, please contact us at

Post a Job or Internship

Employers are always invited to share job and internship announcements with the I School. Email your job listing to , and we’llshare it with our students and/or alumni.

For more information on summer internships for I School students, please see our internship guidelines.

Information Sessions

Meet students by sharing information about your organization through a presentation on your company culture, values, or experiences. Presentations such as “A day in the life of a front end developer,” “How we enable innovation,” or “Design principles @ work” can help a student visualize working at your company and determine if it would be a good fit for their interests, personality, and strengths.

We are happy to help you showcase your organization in the best way possible. Contact us to learn more about holding an information session at the I School.

Networking Events

The I School plans a variety of networking events throughout the year, connecting employers and students in an informal, conversational setting. Employers who attend will have the opportunity to introduce their organization, as well as current/future opportunities, and speak with students directly about their interests and skills. Participating in a networking event is a great way to help students gain insight into your organization.

Panel Discussions

A great way to meet students is by having a member of your organization participate on one of our career panels, which can be held virtually or on campus. These panel discussions allow students to hear more about particular career paths, including challenges, opportunities, and advice on job searching. The conversations during the panel often provide students with a sense of what working at your organization would look like and if their skills and strengths would be a good fit. Panels are structured to begin with a meaningful panelist introduction and then allocate most of the time for student Q&A.

Skill-building Events

Events such as portfolio design workshops, resume review nights, or technical interviewing seminars can be a creative way to learn more about I School students and build awareness of your organization. These events are held throughout the year and employers are invited to participate in a variety of ways, including sending guest speakers and hosting or sponsoring events. Please contact to learn more and participate.

Attend a Career Fair

For the 2014–2015 academic year, the I School is planning a spring career fair for our students. Employers who attend the event each have designated table space to present information and meet with students who want to learn more about you!

See our Employer Events page to sign up for an upcoming Career Fair, or email us at to be notified when future Career Fairs are scheduled.
