Student Publicity

In spring 2019, the Business Career Center newsletter grew into BizNews - a college-wide undergraduate weekly email.  Modeled after MU NewsBriefs (or Marquette Today), Laura Philbin and Meghann Witthoft create a weekly email to inform and engage students about deadlines, announcements, events, involvement opportunities and other newsworthy items.  Within the fall and spring semesters, students, faculty and staff may submit news item requests through the online submission form.  Examples of events to submit include application-based program deadlines (AIM, banking), case competition opportunities, speaker events, etc.

PowerPoint Slides: Business Career Center staff will continue to publicize upcoming events through PPT slides shared with faculty each Friday. Thank you for presenting these to your classes and/or posting to D2L.

Handshake & Recruiting Ethics

In alignment with our professional ethics, Business Career Center staff seek to ensure that students have equal access to information about job and internship opportunities.  When employers post to Handshake, this equity is achieved. 

It is very efficient for employers to post to Handshake.  Over 700 colleges and universities use Handshake, so most employers (including all fortune 500 companies) have an account on the system already.  When you receive outreach from employers:

If employers request that you recommend individual students, please see the candidate referral guidelines developed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
