You may get involved by:
- Registering with Handshake to post your internship and job positions

Did you know that the Career Development Center has partnered with many organizations to provide scholarships for students participating (or planning to participate) in unpaid internships? The purpose of these scholarships is to provide recognition and financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate students who, without this funding, might otherwise NOT participate in this type of valuable high impact practice. If you would like to start the conversation about this opportunity to support KU students, please contact us!
KU Recruiting Services and Opportunities
Post Openings & Search for Candidates
Handshake is the primary online resource for preparing and connecting students and alumni with employers. The following services and resources are available to employers:
- Employer Profiles
- Internship & Job Postings
- Career Fairs & Events Registration
- On-Campus Recruiting
- Resume Books
- Due to the high volume of postings received, the Career Development Center cannot create, maintain, nor edit postings for employers.
- Non-career related to temporary, part-time, full-time, or seasonal opportunities may NOT be posted.
Recruiting Social Media Package ($50)
During the semester, employers can share up to five posts (images or short videos) via the Kutztown University Career Development Center platforms (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter).
Employers will need to email their content to us with instructions for which platforms to use and preferred days and times (10am-4pm) for posting, if they have any.
Post should aim to build brand awareness among students and promote its other recruitment activities. Employers must follow the Career Development Center’s Social Media Guidelines. For example, posts should focus on culture and careers with the organization, with no intent to sell products/services.
On-Campus Interviewing Program
Recruiting takes place in October, November, March, and April. To schedule an On-Campus Interview date to recruit for career-related internships and/or entry-level jobs, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include the following information:
- Date preference(s)
- Name, job title, phone number and email address of the primary contact person
- Available positions/job titles of the internships and/or jobs for which you are recruiting
- The number of rooms you will need and the number of interviewers
- Duration of interviews (30, 45 or 60 minutes)
Please note: On-Campus Interviewing is coordinated through Handshake. Please allow at least 2 business days for your request to be processed.

The KU CDC hosts three annual fairs for organizations to recruit students and alumni. Events include an Internship & Job Fair each semester and the Job Fair for Educators in the Spring. Registration is through Handshake. For more information, contact us at email@example.com.
Information Sessions & Tables
Information sessions may be scheduled by organizations once per semester. It is the responsibility of the hosting organization to promote and market the session to students.
