Additional Recruiting Options

Information Tables

A good way to brand your organization’s name and position on campus is to host an information table in the Student Union. This option is effective for positions exhibiting one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Positions which are highly cyclical.
  • Positions requiring large numbers.
  • Positions not requiring a degree.
  • Entry-level, ground-floor opportunities.

The Student Union receives heavy traffic and provides an excellent location to showcase an organization and increase visibility on campus. This branding technique is particularly productive during the fall when NKU sees an influx of new students. We recommend the lunchtime hours of 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Tuesday – Thursday.

Information Sessions

Hold a presentation to connect in-depth with students and faculty. These sessions offer a way to disseminate more information regarding:

  • Position(s) and their requirements including expectations, responsibilities, and desired skill sets.
  • Organization and its structure, culture or management philosophy.
  • Employment process including on-boarding, testing, and application instructions.
  • Potential career paths after hire such as possible relocation or skills that will be learned
  • Answer questions.

Sessions can be done in conjunction with on-campus interviewing or on their own. We recommend allowing faculty to attend as they can assist in directing students toward your opportunity. We also suggest a 4-week lead-time to allow target marketing of the position or organization and a scheduling buffer.

Both of these recruiting options can be utilized with Co-op or Internship opportunities and On-Campus Interviewing. To schedule an Information Table or Information Session please contact:
