Employer Virtual Engagement

Connecting with Students and Graduates

As a GCU Graduate Recruiter we want to ensure that you can connect with our students and graduates using our new virtual engagement portfolio. This is an excellent way to highlight your vacancies and promote your company brand. You can network with students and graduates on a one to one basis or in small groups, share industry insights and discuss the changing jobs landscape.

Virtual Jobs Fairs

Virtual Jobs Fairs provide an excellent platform for employers to promote their vacancies and recruitment for their 2020 intake. You will have the chance to engage virtually with graduates on a one to one basis or small groups.  We are currently exploring the options of running a series of virtual fairs and will provide more information in due course.

Career Conversations – Virtual Conversations with Students and Graduates

Career Conversations operate over an extended lunch time period and offer employers an informal, virtual environment to speak with graduates on a one to one basis or in small groups. Conversation topics can range from specific job vacancies and the skills you are looking for, to new recruitment methods, and preparing for interview.
