Information for Employers
The James C. Denneny, Jr. Career Development Center provides a number of resources for employers looking to hire qualified graduates. CMU students are ready for new challenges with the skills needed to transition successfully from campus life to a professional career.
Recruiting on Campus
The personal attention and sense of community that CMU students rave about, sets us apart in the eyes of employers. Your decision to recruit at our university makes you a part of our extended family, and we treat you with the same personalized approach we give our students. If your company is interested in any recruiting opportunities, please contact the Career Development Center at 660-248-6986.
Handshake: Employers are encouraged to join Handshake, our online job bank and web-based recruiting system. Handshake allows employers to post jobs/internships free of charge, edit contacts, browse student and alumni resumes and more!
CMU Career EXPO: Represent your organization at our annual Career Expo held in February.
On-Campus Opportunities: Employers are invited to campus to interview students for upcoming openings, set-up informational tables, conduct formal presentations, or participate in campus career development events.
Policy for Third-Party Recruiters
In compliance with the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE), third-party recruiters will not be allowed to post vacancies to the Handshake online job bank and web-based recruiting system or have access to the online resume books unless the third-party recruiter is willing to disclose the name of the organization seeking potential candidates for valid full-time/part-time degree-related positions or internship opportunities. At no point will the third-party recruiting organization charge a fee to the candidate. The job posting must include this statement at the beginning of the job listing:
(Third-party Recruiter) has been retained by (Employing Organization) to help identify candidates for this position. Please contact (Third-party Recruiter) when applying for this position.
