Recruit at Valpo

Dwyer has a long standing relationship with Valpo and recruits its students both for internships and full time employment. Given the close proximity to Valpo, Dwyer creates cooperative projects that allow students and professors to contribute to the innovation at Dwyer. This helps create a better understanding of our company.  Students that are offered full time employment have been found to have outstanding engineering and leadership skills, are immediately productive, and add value to our company.

Our recruiting system, Handshake, allows you to post internship and job openings.

HOST AN EMPLOYER INFO SESSION

Want to get the word out about your organization outside of the traditional confines of a Career Fair? Then an info session might be for you. We offer many opportunities for you to spread the word about your organization and opportunities at little to no cost to you. Call us at 219.464.5005 to arrange any of the opportunities below.

INFORMATIONAL TABLE

Reserve an info table in our highest-traffic area on campus: Chapel View Lounge. Located in the Harre Union, this pathway is almost always filled with students. It leads directly to our main dining services as well as a number of academic buildings. In other words, you’re very likely to be seen! We recommend the 10 a.m.-2 p.m. slot, as it yields the most traffic, but you are welcome to reserve any time you wish.

COMPANY PRESENTATION

Want to reach a particular subset of students (for example, mechanical engineers)? Then a company presentation might be for you. Come speak about your organization and its opportunities and have the chance to meet and mingle with interested students. We will arrange the location and coordinate the advertising. There is no charge, but we do encourage you to consider sponsoring food/refreshments, as it can lead to a bigger crowd!

CLASSROOM OR WORKSHOP PRESENTATION

Can you speak to a particular subject? Looking to share your expertise in a certain area while also promoting your company? Consider speaking to a classroom of students or collaborating with us on one of our many career education workshops. Let us know what you are interested in and we can connect you with the appropriate faculty or staff member.

On-campus recruiting takes place mid-September through November and January through April.

Post job descriptions and desired qualifications on Handshake. Qualified students then sign up for interviews and submit their resumes online.

You are able to view the resumes online, select which students you would like to interview, and then schedule interviews accordingly.

To schedule or to learn more about on-campus interviewing, please contact Tom Cath or Janet Styf at 219.464.5005 or career.center@valpo.edu.

A great way to familiarize yourself with the qualities and characteristics of Valpo students while simultaneously enhancing your brand across campus is to volunteer your time and expertise while aiding students in their professional development.

Students often greatly benefit from the guidance and mentorship of professionals in their fields of interest. Knowing this, our office makes an effort to coordinate as many opportunities as possible for employers and alumni to give back. Review some of the many ways that you can give back below.
