We welcome your involvement at Ave Maria and look forward to assisting you in your recruiting efforts. There are a number of ways to interact with Ave Maria students and graduates.
Internships: Internships are a valuable component of a student’s learning experience and a valuable resource for employers looking to recruit new talent. Employers may set up a program to recruit and train Ave Maria students for internships. An internship program with Ave Maria University will consist of the following:
· The Employer Application for Internship Program will be submitted to outline preliminary details of the program proposed and determine roles and responsibilities for the intern(s).
· The Internship Affiliation Agreement will outline duties of the Organization, University, and Student and will be signed by a representative from the organization and university. .
· An Intern Evaluation Form will be completed halfway through the internship and at the conclusion of the internship. This feedback promotes a receptive learning environment and any revisions needed for the program’s growth.
Job Board: Employers can post to the university job board using College Central Network. Using the system, employers can host an account and post jobs directly to students and alumni. They can expire the jobs once the position is filled, and repost the job if they need to open it again.
Career & Internship Expo: The Spring Career & Internship Expo was held on February 10, 2017.. A giant thank-you to all the companies involved, and we are planning is currently underway for the next event. Details will be announced at the beginning of March 2017.
If you would like to be involved in the next Career & Internship Expo, or would like to be notified when the date is announced, you can subscribe for updates from the Career Office.
Information Table: We welcome you to table in the Student Union building during meal hours to speak with students about your opportunities. Information Tabling sessions generally run from 11:30 AM-1:30 PM and/or from 4:30 PM-6:30 PM during the weekdays.
Information Session: Most information sessions take place during a 10-15 minute portion of a class, or during a 30 minute presentation in one of our conference rooms. In both cases, information sessions typically involve greater coordination with a university faculty member of academic department. Contact the Career Office to determine whether an information session would be suitable for your organization.
Resume Critiques: Reviewing resumes with students is a great way to interact with them and meet some promising individuals along the way. Resume critiques are best held in the afternoon or early evening, and scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance. Like information sessions, providing food is a great way to encourage turnout.
Mock Interviews: We invite you to conduct practice interviews for our juniors and seniors. The goal of these sessions is to train students in how to behave and answer questions for an interview. We will try to simulate (as near as possible) your company’s professional interview environment. Individualized feedback is provided to each student so they can grow in their interview aptitude.
