Local and Regional Employers


Without partnerships with local and regional employers, the Career Center wouldn't be able to offer the services we do.

Employers

You're important to us!

Whether it's mentoring a student, attending a Career Fair, offering internship and job opportunities or speaking to a class about how to advance in the "real world," local and regional employers play a vital role in the success of our students – now and in the future.

We are eager to partner with you. Call us today at 563/333-6339 to talk about how we can help each other achieve our goals.

Employers can post full- and part-time jobs, internships and more on BeeCAREERS!

On-Campus Recruiting

On-Campus Recruiting

You've posted the opening for a job or internship; now take the next step: recruit directly on our campus! At the same time, you can also create visibility and increase your brand recognition with students during the recruiting process.

Step 1: Post a position on BeeCAREERS.

Step 2: Schedule an interview day on our calendar.

Step 3: Preview and invite selected candidates for an on campus interview.

We take care of marketing this opportunity to students, gathering application materials (résumés, cover letters, and transcripts) via BeeCAREERS, and self-scheduling interview dates/times using BeeCAREERS.

Please call 563/333-6339 for additional information.

Assist with Mock Interviews

Help us prepare our students for professional interviews in their field by conducting mock interviews.

We have seminars and presentations about interviewing, but we believe the interview itself is the best preparation. The behavioral interviewing style is used extensively these days and is very effective for employers. Many students, however, need additional practice in order to handle it well. 

Check our calendar of events to find out dates and times of our Career Boot Camps where you will have the opportunity to interview current students using speed mock interviews.

Contact the Career Center at 563-333-6339 to find out how you can get involved.
