Recruiting Guide

Recruiting Guide

Each year, Career Services at Michigan Technological University connects thousands of students, graduates, and alumni with hundreds of companies. Whether you have short-term employment needs (internships and co-ops) or are looking for long-term prospects, we can help you.

A Michigan Tech Education

We teach in class what you do in industry. A Michigan Tech education is challenging and emphasizes teamwork, communication skills, research, and entrepreneurship. Our students have practical skills, contribute on the job from the start, and have a great work ethic and a high retention rate.

We prepare students to create the future.

Meet Our Students Face-to-Face

Participate in our two annual Career Fairs, which typically attract more than 3,000 students. Use these job fairs to showcase your organization, meet our outstanding students and alumni, and streamline the process of recruiting new employees.

Recruiting Guide

All current Michigan Tech students and alumni have access to Career Services and the full range of services we offer.

To help navigate the various options you have available to you, we have collected these items into a single location to help you organize your recruiting strategy.

Career Fairs

The Career Fair takes place twice a year (in the fall and spring).  The Career Fair brings students and employers together to discuss internship, co-op, and full-time positions in a variety of industries. More details about about dates and companies attending can be found on our Career Fair web page.

Interviews and Informational Sessions

Connect with our students and alumni who are seeking employment.  Schedule interviews and information sessions through HuskyJOBS. Learn more or schedule your interview and information sessions today!

Post Open Positions Online

Employers may post current employment vacancies, including co-op, full-time, and seasonal positions, to HuskyJOBS.  This system provides access to post-positions, review resumes, and schedule your on-campus interviews and informational sessions..

Note: HuskyJOBS accounts require manual approval to verify the company is an actual employer and not a recruiting company.

Co-op and Summer Internship Employment

Michigan Tech has co-op and summer internship programs. Companies of all sizes have found that providing an experiential learning opportunity for students provides value for all involved.  

As an employer, you get a chance to provide some training and mentoring to a young employee that directly increases the chances of them wanting to work for you after they graduate.  

Resume Review

Michigan Tech students and alumni upload resumes and other job information to HuskyJOBS.  Employers with qualified HuskyJOBS accounts or open job postings in HuskyJOBS for co-op, internship, or permanent employment opportunities can review these resumes electronically.

On-Campus Recruiting

Each year, Michigan Tech attracts employers from around the country to conduct on-campus interviews with students for full-time, summer, and co-op positions within their organizations.  We would like you to enjoy the personal service we give our corporate guests who interview on campus.
