An effective recruiting plan requires building relationships and establishing a presence on campus. The UMBC Career Center offers a wide variety of employer services designed to facilitate your access to UMBC’s top-quality students. We can recommend strategic approaches to recruiting UMBC students and gaining visibility on campus. To learn more about our student body and academic programs, check out our UMBC Talent page. We continue to offer a hybrid approach, including on-campus and virtual recruitment opportunities to connect you with our students. This hybrid approach will allow our students and you as our employers to decide on which engagements work best for you and your team.
We encourage you to take a moment to complete the Employer Interest Form to let us know how we can assist you with meeting your recruitment goals. We will contact you upon receipt to assist you with scheduling dates, crafting a recruitment plan, and providing additional information as needed.
