UMBC Connects ($$$)
Each semester, UMBC sets aside several days for its partnering organizations to be showcased on campus. Each day includes extensive advertising, food, and your choice of programming.
UMBC Connects: Employers in the Sciences
This event is designed to give organizations the chance to network with targeted UMBC undergraduate and graduate students who have chosen to pursue careers in the sciences and mathematics. It offers you an excellent opportunity to speak with students about intern and career opportunities within your organization. We also welcome participants who are interested in providing perspective, advice, and insight to our budding scientific professionals. You do not have to be actively recruiting to attend this event.
UMBC Connects: Employers in the Humanities & Social Sciences
This event is designed to give organizations the chance to network with targeted UMBC undergraduate and graduate students and alumni who have chosen to pursue careers with non-profits and in the social sciences. It offers an excellent opportunity to speak with students about intern and career opportunities within your organization. We also welcome participants who are interested in providing perspective, advice, and insight to budding leaders in social science fields. You do not have to be actively recruiting to attend this event.
Arts with a Purpose
Designed specifically for arts majors—including the visual and performing arts—and students interested in working within the arts, this event allows students to network with arts professionals and learn about potential career paths in an informal setting.
Career Paths for Graduate Students
This program helps to expand graduate students’ thinking about employment options in various industries and to inform them about available career paths. You will have the opportunity to meet with talented master’s and PhD-level students during speed-networking roundtable discussions. Students are encouraged to bring resumes, and we encourage employers who are actively recruiting to consider attending.
Reverse Career Fair
Student organizations set up booths highlighting the accomplishments of their organization. Also outstanding individual students who have earned a Professional Edge Badge for completing an exceptional internship, research, and co-op experience may register as well. We offer you as an employer the opportunity to walk through and connect one-on-one with these motivated students.
Networking & Information Sessions ($)
Hosting an information session enables you to network and teach students about your organization and the opportunities available. Typically, information sessions are an hour long, held between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, beginning in mid-September through November and mid-February through April.
This series of events is designed to give organizations, new to recruiting at UMBC, an opportunity to build their brand on campus and connect with students in a relaxed atmosphere conducive to networking. Career Corners are typically held 10am – 2pm on select Thursdays throughout the semester and are located in a high traffic area to attract passing students. Advertising encourages targeted students to come learn more about your company and the employment opportunities you have to offer.
UMBC On the Road: Exploring Outside the Loop
Students visit organizations and get a glimpse of life as an intern or career professional. We can bring as many or as few students as you can handle. Among our best and brightest, these students are majoring in disciplines that are most aligned with your hiring needs. Ideally, students will be able to tour your facility, hear about the company from current interns and/or employees, understand your current hiring needs, and have the chance to ask questions.
The Inside Scoop, Intern Success Conference, Senior Success Conference, Graduate School 101 Conference
Whether you are participating as a panelist, presenting on a topic, or networking with students, these programs are a powerful way to strengthen your recruiting relationship with UMBC and attract top talent to your organization.
